Kodachome brings the 1940s stars to life and color in this amazing photography book. Pictures from magazine covers, billboards, and cinema marquees taken by the best photographers of our time, showcase and capture Gary Cooper’s blue eyes, Rita Hayworth’s auburn hair, Betty Grable’s rosy cheeks and so much more in Kodachrome. (Kirsten)


Hollywood in Kodachrome is a stunning portfolio of the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age, captured in rich, deeply saturated color photographs reproduced from original Kodachrome negatives and curated by collector David Wills and designer Stephen Schmidt, the creative team behind Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis and Audrey: The 60s.

From Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner, and Rita Hayworth to Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart, and Gregory Peck--and many more--the silver screen's elite are all here, in the full blush of youth, captured as if they were taken yesterday. But the true star is the medium itself: late-1940s sheet Kodachrome, a film stock that remains legendary for its rich tonal range, precise color, and detail.

Including a foreword by Golden Age star Rhonda Fleming, and featuring more than 200 photos from classic films and publicity shoots, Hollywood in Kodachrome is a magnificent tribute to Hollywood's most beloved icons, captured at their glamorous best.
