HOLLYWOOD ICONS: PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE JOHN KOBAL FOUNDATION. Antique Collectors' Club Ltd, Woodbridge, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 224 pp. with 219 ills. (13 col.). ISBN 9781851498192 In English.
Publisher's description: Hollywood Icons features approximately 200 photographs focusing on the great faces that drew moviegoers around the world into movie theaters by the tens of millions. Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Gloria Swanson and other luminaries of early silent film are depicted in splendid photographs revealing the potency of their allure that is obvious even today. Later silent stars such as Garbo and Crawford, who rose to even greater cinematic heights when the movies began to speak, are featured in series of images showing how those two star faces were magically transformed into thrilling exemplars of 1930s glamour. Better known are the great players from the 1930s whose names today form the bedrock of Hollywood history. All-American men such as Gary Cooper and Clark Gable shared the screen with sirens such as Marlene Dietrich and Hedy Lamarr, two among many who began acting in Europe and found lasting fame in southern California. They were soon joined by Vivien Leigh and Charles Boyer.
