Description: Hollywood's golden age is revealed from a different angle by this collection of advertising art. It depicts the posters created for promotion within the industry during the 1930s and 1940s, rather than the ones shown in the cinemas. See Rita Hayworth as she was photographed by "Gilda" (1946), and Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers caught mid-air for "Follow the Fleet" (1936). Garbo, Gable, Tracy, Hepburn, and dozens more are featured in full-page or double-page four-color spreads. Red cloth with silver lettering on spine and front cover. Dust jacket price-clipped. 192pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.
