Hollywood at Home A Family Album 1950-1965 is another book that I've had forever and absolutely love.
This is a gorgeous book of apparently candid shots, but we all know that this type of thing is usually staged candid if you know what I mean! Despite this the photos are beautiful and you also get to have a nosy at a 50s Hollywood lifestyle and home, ah to live in that world.
Here's the cover of the book, how Stately Manor House do Bogey and Bacall look?
Here's a fabulous picture of them both outside their house, in their open top jag, ah that's the life eh?
I absolutely love this picture of Rock Hudson throwing a BBQ party, the photograph looks very staged, but hey that's old Hollywood. I love all the different styles of the women, I love his apron with 'A Wolf in Chef's Clothing' on it, just gorgeous!
This is a lovely shot of Glenn Ford and his dog, don't know why this one caught my eye but I think it's cute!
I do love this shot of Joe E Brown and his wife Kathryn taken in 1951
And last but not least this great over the fence chatting shot of Jimmy Durante and Rossano Brazzi.
It's a really great coffee table book. There are pictures of stars, parties, homes you name it, I guess it does what it says on the cover, definitely worth a look and lots more glamorous shots than I've put here I just prefer quirky sometimes!
