Throughout her career, Eve Arnold alternated between serious documentary photography and working behind the scenes on numerous films. At a time when Hollywood studios controlled every aspect of their actors' image, Arnold's candid photographs showed them at their most intimate and their most compelling: Marilyn Monroe sharing a private moment with Arthur Miller, Marlene Dietrich, uncharacteristically girlish in the recording studio, Michael Caine and Candice Bergen doing an impromptu tango number and an exhausted Richard Attenborough stealing a nap in between shooting. Eve Arnold: Film Journal is a collection of these famous film stills along with the notes and impressions made by Arnold during the shoot. As her camera revealed the unseen sides of Hollywood legends, Arnold also became privy to their private lives. In her Film Journal, she writes memorably about the tensions and dramas on the film sets, of Marilyn Monroe combing her pubic hair during an interview, Simone Signoret discussing her husband Yves Montand's infidelities, Joan Crawford sneaking in vodka in a Pepsi cooler, and Marlene Dietrich recounting her night with John F. Kennedy. With 80 previously unpublished photographs, including many old favorites, Eve Arnold: Film Journal is a classic from one of the great photographers of our time.
