A special feature of this book is its inclusion of small black-and-white reproductions of all the original paintings that have inspired Susan Herbert. Once again she has risen to the challenge of endowing the world’s best- loved works of art with a certain feline charm.

Описание: This comprehensive volume examines Tinseltowns fascination with the City of Light, from silent movies through to modern blockbusters. Romantic, elegant, and enticing, Paris has fascinated American filmmakers for over a century. As habile in accommodating a romantic comedy or mystery as it is in hosting an action-packed thriller, it is by far the foreign city that appears most frequently in Hollywood movies. In Paris by Hollywood, essays by eminent film experts and commentators uncover Hollywoods role in the cultivation of now timeless Parisian cliches, examining seminal films such as An American in Paris, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Sabrina. Chapters on Audrey Hepburns Parisian persona; Disneys and Woody Allens personifications of Paris; Hollywoods depictions of the French Revolution; and the American fascination with the enigmatic, glamorous Parisienne explore a cultural relationship that owes as much to the allure of Paris itself as to Hollywoods desire to paint a picture of European exoticism. Interviews with eminent filmmakers and actors including Martin Scorsese, Julie Delpy, and Leslie Caron bring us behind the scenes and provide intimate insiders perspective. Insightful analysis explores the reasons why Hollywood has invested and continues to invest so much in depicting the French capital; an often mutually-beneficial economic and cultural relationship. Covering over 100 years of movie-making, from silent films to the animated world of Disney, via Cancan films and action-packed blockbusters, Paris by Hollywood is the perfect companion for lovers of American cinema and those captivated by the magic of the French capital.

Описание: Vanity Fair parties have become a legend of their own. Larry Fink, famous for a keen, uniquely sensual documentary eye, has been the official photographer of these events. His look is clear and honestly searing; his flashlight is married to the instant in devilishly expressive ways. He shows the main celebrities of the glamorous movie world anxiously at leisure.
Описание: Hollywood Icons features approximately 200 photographs focusing on the great faces that drew moviegoers around the world into movie theatres by the tens of millions. Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Gloria Swanson and other luminaries of early silent film are depicted in splendid photographs revealing the potency of their allure that is obvious even today. Later silent stars such as Garbo and Crawford, who rose to even greater cinematic heights when the movies began to speak, are featured in series of images showing how those two star faces were magically transformed into thrilling exemplars of 1930s glamour.
Better known are the great players from the 1930s whose names today form the bedrock of Hollywood history. All-American men such as Gary Cooper and Clark Gable shared the screen with sirens such as Marlene Dietrich and Hedy Lamarr, two among many who began acting in Europe and found lasting fame in southern California. They were soon joined by Vivien Leigh and Charles Boyer. Legends such as Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall ware prominent among the stars, along with Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.
All the great Hollywood photographers whose careers were resurrected by John Kobal in dozens of books are included. The exhibition will be arranged to show both the sweep of glamour photography as well as to focus on the unique style of each of the leading camera artists.

Описание: 'Hollywood Unseen' is a tribute to the incredible inventiveness and ingenuity of the great Hollywood film studios: Columbia, Paramount, MGM, Universal, Warner Brothers, RKO and Twentieth Century Fox. From the late 1920s to the early 1950s these studios presided over the 'Golden Age of Cinema', and their publicity departments created some of the most stunning and iconic images of Hollywood's stars ever taken. Here, for the first time, are photographs showing the 'ordinary lives' of the stars, including Rita Hayworth, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. In reality, these photographs were as carefully constructed and prepared as any classic portrait or scene, and they depicted the actors and actresses exactly as the studios wanted them to be seen. The publicity departments cleverly formed an idealised view of the husbands, wives, children, pets, parties, premieres and hobbies of the stars. Ironically, many of the images were only used once or twice, and were then never seen again. Drawn from the extensive archive of the John Kobal Foundation, this book showcases an extraordinary collection of these hidden photographic gems. John Kobal was an authority on Hollywood portrait photography, who established a preeminent collection of works featuring iconic stars of the day. The Getty Image Library in London will be hosting an exhibition

Описание: I Used to be in Pictures is a collection of unpublished correspondence between English born brothers, Austin and Howard Mutti-Mewse and some of the most celebrated and iconic film stars from the silent and 'golden' era of film-making.
The brothers' foray into this glamorous world began with a simple fan letter to Lillian Gish, followed by another to Douglas Fairbanks Jnr. This gave rise to a wealth of letter writing. Yet, the most interesting part of this story is that these letters were written retrospectively, as raised on a diet of black and white movies, Austin and Howard's unique relationships with these screen legends developed long after the height of their celebrity, a quarter of a century after the cameras had stopped rolling, at a time when they were able to reflect back on lives lived in the spotlight.
During the nineties, the brothers were entertained by stars, including Bette Davis, Marlene Dietrich, James Stewart and Elizabeth Taylor who, thrilled at this late recognition, invited them into their homes in Hollywood, Palm Springs, Malibu, Glendale and Santa Barbara; to reminisce over afternoon tea.
Accompanied by many intimate and candid photographs of screen icons both at the height of their stardom and in later years, this is a collection for anyone looking for an insider glimpse into arguably Hollywood's finest hour; a time when stars were made in black and white, when all that glittered was the sequins and the gold,
