It's been so long since I showed any of my film star books that I'm not sure if I ever showed this one before. If so, I'm almost certain I did not show these photos. So without further adieu, I give you Masters of Starlight which was published in 1987. A heavy, coffee table type volume... That is Mary Pickford on the cover.
Lillian Gish from a movie called Broken Blossoms, 1919
Rudolph Valentino and Natacha Rambova in 1923
Hedy Lamarr in 1940
Jean Harlow, 1937; notice the old cars in the background.
Mostly black and white, there are some color photos. Claudette Colbert as Cleopatra, 1934. A rather daring bodice, Claudette!
Elizabeth Taylor on the set of Giant, 1956
Gary Cooper in 1942; lots of smoking going on in much of these photos.
Thanks for popping in!
