Marvelously illustrated with more than 200 rare images from the silent era through the 1970s, this joyous treasure trove features film and television’s most famous actors and actresses celebrating the holidays, big and small, in lavishly produced photographs. Join the stars for festive fun in celebrating a variety of holidays, from New Year’s to Saint Patrick’s Day to Christmas and everything in between. Legends such as Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, and Audrey Hepburn spread holiday cheer throughout the calendar year in iconic, ironic, and illustrious style. These images, taken by legendary stills photographers, hearken back to the Golden Age of Hollywood, when motion picture studios devised elaborate publicity campaigns to promote their stars and to keep their names and faces in front of the movie-going public all year round.

 

My Review:

I am really loving these pictures of Hollywood Celebrates the Holidays: 1920-1970. There are some really classy photographs of some of the greatest actors and actress of all time. I received a digital copy to review and I can tell while viewing this book on my computer that the pictures are awesome. Great quality. If you or a friend happens to love old Hollywood this is a must have book. The photography is awesome! Each photo has information about the photo and I think this book is put together well. There are so many great pictures I can’t even decide which one is my favorite they are all wonderful.  This is  hard cover book that would look great on a coffee table or any place.
