If you are someone who enjoys looking at vintage photographs from Hollywood's heyday (late 1940's to early 1960's) - Then - "Hollywood Candid" is certainly the book that is sure to offer you great viewing satisfaction.

The 150 b&w stills (with accompanying text) presented in this first-rate volume are definitely some of the best snapshots that I have ever seen.

These images were all taken by renowned photographer, Murray Garrett who had worked in Tinseltown, on assignment, through such notable magazines as LIFE, Time, and Look.

I guarantee that you will not be disappointed with these excellent images that proudly showcase some of Hollywood's biggest and brightest stars of yesteryear.

Easy coffee table-sized photo book of one photographer's superficial interaction with stars of the 1950s. Photos are pleasant to look at, but there are some errors in identification (Jule Styne named Jule "Stein" and Julie Andrews simply being anonymously identified as someone's "date".) No photo truly is a standout.
