I haven´t posted anything in almost a week, instead I have been busy updating older posts. But here is a new one, with wonderful black and white photography. The American photographer George Hurrell 1904-1992 worked with everybody that was somebody. He created the glamorous black and white picture that is significant to old Hollywood. He worked with Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, and later Harrison Ford, Sharon Stone and Sherilyn Fenn.
Brooke Shields, 1981, Veronica Lake & Marlon Brando. It is difficult to guess which picture is oldest and which picture is the newest one.
Jean Harlow, 1934, Chevy Chase, circa 1980 & Anna May Wong, 1937 (above).
Bette Davis, 1939, Sharon Stone, 1992. Sharon was the last star to be photographed by Hurrell.
