Abstract:

"Hollywood Candid showcases 150 of Murray Garrett's best photographs of Hollywood and its stars. Some of these shots appeared in LIFE, Time, Look, and other national magazines shortly after they were taken; many have never been published before. These remarkable pictures bring an extraordinary number of show business figures to life. There are glamourous leading ladies (Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall), dashing leading men (Cary Grant, Gary Cooper), sex goddesses (Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner), comedians (Jack Benny, Bob Hope), sublime singers (Nat "King" Cole, Bing Crosby, Lena Horne), and magnetic superstars (Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra), captured on the set, at home, or at fashionable night spots by Garrett's lens."

"Accompanying the illustrations are Murray Garrett's own comments and reminiscences, giving readers a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of Hollywood in its heyday."--Jacket.
