HOLLYWOOD IN KODACHROME

image

A beautiful new book by David Wills features the amazing Kodachrome stills of the great Hollywood photographers of the 1940s, George Hurrell,Clarence Sinclair Bull and many others.
There is a nice introduction by Rhonda Fleming who talked about the ‘hot and heavy lighting to accommodate Kodachrome film.’
The clarity is eye-watering and the star close-ups are stunning.AND there are photos completely new to me.

This hardback,336 page book,only published in November,2013, cost me £14 from Amazon – what a bargain!
