A dazzling array of Hollywood starlets and pin-up girls come to life in hundreds of eye-popping, 3-D photographs taken by legendary film star Harold Lloyd
"Lush and glorious..." --Vanity Fair
Includes a pair of Harold Lloyd-style 3-D glasses!
Harold Lloyd, along with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, was one of the greatest stars of the silent film era, appearing in such classics as Safety Last! and The Freshman. He was also an avid photographer with a passion for stereoscopic photography, or 3-D. In 1947 he began taking pictures of family and friends, including Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and Ronald Reagan. During his lifetime he took more than 300,000 photographs, thousands of which featured starlets and models who posed nude in front of some of the most spectacular and creative backdrops and scenery. Collected here for the first time by Lloyd's granddaughter, Suzanne Lloyd, and now in paperback, Harold Lloyd's Hollywood Nudes in 3-D! presents the most lavish, luscious, and, yes, ludicrous photographs of Hollywood nudes from the 1940's, 50's and 60's in all kinds of settings, including Lloyd's luxurious Greenacres estate, the Grand Canyon, and studios filled with outrageous props such as faux flowers, animal pelts, and Christmas kitsch. There are 200 photographs in all, 50 of them rendered in 3-D and viewable with the special Harold Lloyd-style 3-D spectacles for an enhanced and extraordinary visual experience!
In Hollywood Nudes in 3D a dazzling array of Hollywood starlets, including Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Dixie Evans, and Tura Satana, come to life in all of their enticing loveliness.
Harold Lloyd, star of such classic silent films as Safety Last and The Freshman, shot more than 300,000 photographs with a stereoscopic (3D) camera. Many of the photos were of young women who dreamed of making it big in Hollywood. Here--for the first time ever in book form--are 200 of Lloyd's most lavish, luscious, and ludicrous pictures of Hollywood nudes posed against some of the most dramatic and creative backgrounds imaginable. Approximately 75 are reproduced in tantalizing 3D, and can be viewed with the aid of the special Harold Lloyd-style glasses included with the book.
