The Hollywood of the 1940’s brings many images to mind. This book collects many of these famous images, originally printed in fan magazines, on posters, and in fashion spreads. Features 106 stars in 163 full-page photos that range from the outbreak of World War II to the Korean conflict of 1951. A lively introduction discusses the people and films of the ‘40’s, the importance of these photos and the photographers who took them, and their magical appeal to movie fans. The captions give the year, photographer, studio, the movies with which many of the portraits are associated, and the costume designer. 176 pages, 8-3/8 in. x 11-1/4 in. Copyright 1977.
