Venus in Hollywood Book Description:

In photographs only seen briefly as part of studio press kits distributed upon release of a new film, many of these long-lost stills of Hollywood's leading ladies have been reverently rendered into color portraits that not only evoke a treasured past of beauty and glamour, but also seem comfortably familiar to the contemporary eye. These posed photos have been chosen not only for their bespoke sensuality, but also for how the discrete addition of color to older portraits has elevated a former black and white still to a kind of artistic grace, prompting rediscovery of classic Hollywood's most beautiful women. Actresses portrayed here include Julie Andrews, Anna Mae Wong, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Carole Lombard, Carroll Baker, Joan Crawford, Angie Dickinson, Eva Marie Saint Ava Gardner, Greta Garbo and many others.
