George Hurrell is credited with creating the glamour image of Hollywood through his lush and beautifully illuminated portraits of movie stars. He set the new Hollywood standard for all that followed. Hurrell continued his portrait work until he passed away in 1992. Here are his shots of VERONICA LAKE.

Akira Kurosawa painting on set of Dodes’ka-den (1970). Unknown photographer. Thank you Tarun Neo for your contribution.
Daisaku Kimura, first assistant cameraman on Dodes’ka-den: I thought he would be demanding about getting the colors he wanted, but he said nothing about that. On Dodes’ka-den, what he did was to use color without relying on the film stock itself. He painted every object to be filmed. He didn’t trust the film stock. He painted everything. The sunset in the film was created on a soundstage. He told us to paint it however we liked, so I joined in. But when Kurosawa tells you to paint, it makes you nervous. He was an artist himself, so everyone was nervous. But he said not to worry, to be like kids painting picture books, so we went ahead.

“For decades, Ron Galella (1931) was the world’s leading paparazzo, a tireless stalker with an Elmer Fudd laugh, so it was only natural that, when he jumped from behind a post with his Nikon flashing, the stars would respond to him. Often, they’d beckon coyly with a middle finger, or send over a bodyguard to suggest a tension-relieving service that he could perform on himself.” – The New Yorker
