The 26th Cannes Film Festival was held on May 10–25, 1973. The Grand Prix went to the The Hireling by Alan Bridges and Scarecrow by Jerry Schatzberg.[2] At this festival two new non-competitive sections were added: 'Étude et documents' and 'Perspectives du Cinéma Français' (which is started by the French Film Directors' Society and runs until 1991).[3]

The festival opened with Godspell, directed by David Greene[4][5][6] and closed with Lady Sings the Blues, directed by Sidney J. Furie.[7] Swastika, a documentary by Philippe Mora, got negative reactions and caused disturbance among audience by showing Adolf Hitler's daily and social life.[8] The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky, created controversy at the festival due to its depiction of extreme violence.[9]
