Curated from the luscious Kodachrome stock of the 1940s, renowned preservationist David Wills presents a dazzling Hollywood collection as never before printed. Drawn from Wills' vast collection of first-generation negatives and prints, meticulously scanned and gorgeously printed, these icons of film and style are brought back to life-almost more vibrantly than they were ever seen at the time. In Hollywood in Kodachrome, Wills offers a stunning gallery of hundreds of impossibly lush, full-color photos of the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age. Photographed using late 1940s sheet Kodachrome-a film stock that remains legendary for its tonal range, color accuracy, and detail-the silver screen's elite are brilliantly captured in unparalleled quality. Vividly portrayed in luxuriant detail, the stars in Hollywood in Kodachrome include Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Frank Sinatra, Joan Crawford, Gregory Peck, Lucille Ball, William Holden, and many more. Including a foreword by Rhonda Fleming, and featuring more than 200 photos from classic films and publicity shoots, Hollywood in Kodachrome is a magnificent culmination of the 1940s' most beloved icons.
