Hollywood dressed & undressed : a century of cinema style by Sandy Schreier( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hollywood Dressed & Undressed pairs still photographs from classic and contemporary movies with costume expert Sandy Schreier's entertaining anecdotes and facts about Hollywood movie stars, their unforgettable costumes, and the inside stories behind them. Schreier transports the reader through a century of Hollywood film, from the founding of the Hollywood studio system by Adolph Zukor, Louis B. Mayer, and Samuel Goldwyn (former furrier, button dealer, and glove manufacturer) to today's blockbusters. Beginning with an overview of the major Hollywood fashion trends of this century, the book unfolds in chapters illustrating such themes as working girls, good and bad; underwear before, after, and during censorship; the influence of the French couturiers and American designers on Hollywood costuming; and star-power accessories -- the ubiquitous sunglasses, hats, cigarettes, and cocktails seen on the silver screen."--Jacket

Acting Hollywood style : with photographs from the Kobal collection by Foster Hirsch( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity the toughest "dame" in Hollywood movies? Why are Jimmy Cagney, Carole Lombard, and James Dean "live wires," while Lana Turner, Groucho Marx, and Robert Redford are "mannequins"? Without Psycho's pounding musical score, just how scary would Tony Perkins be? Acting Hollywood Style answers these questions and many more in a lively, fresh examination of the art of screen acting as practiced in Hollywood for the past seven decades. In a text imbued with the love of films, author Foster Hirsch discusses actors - from Rudolph Valentino and Lillian Gish to Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep - who embody the Hollywood Style, a unique blend of acting talent, compatibility with the camera, and that mysterious "star" quality. Among Hirsch's themes are the special circumstances in which film actors perform, the significance of body language, the supremely important face and voice of the film actor, the relationship between an actor's screen persona and "real life." All are considered within the context of the Hollywood studio system, which made and maintained stars during the Golden Era. Much original photographic research, primarily in the archives of the famed Kobal Collection, has been done for the book. Stunning images caputre memorable moments in film history: Garbo cradling a nosegay in Camille, Brando orating in Julius Caesar, Fred and Ginger dancing their love in The Gay Divorcee. Other pictures illuminate themes in the text: the cardboard West of The Petrified Forest, Katharine Hepburn's somewhat inauthentic Chinese peasant in Dragon Seed, and Cary Grant's amusing, balletic antics in Holiday. The 262 photographs, 50 in full color, appear highlighted on full pages or grouped in revealing juxtapositions. The brilliant, groundbreaking text and spectacular images lift Acting Hollywood Style into a rare class of film book. Anyone who has ever thrilled to a great Hollywood performance - or been exasperated by a bad one - will want to have this book to understand the reasons why, and to know what to look for the next time. -- from dust jacket
