Olivia de Havilland in Christmas red



  1. Vickie, you are right about actress’ for the most part were shorter. As a photographer for the past 54 years, knowing what the height of some actress’ were, I could tell who was short and who was tall. Also, I want to thank you for the Hollywood Glamour shots the I had never seen before, and I have a gig collection of them. The one of Thelma Todd is a great example. I did a lot of research on her and got a big surprise. When I open my e-mail I go through BEGUILING HOLLYWOOD first.

    On the Road of Life, the one I was on that day lead me to you.

    • Thank you so much! And, how fascinating — as a photographer you’ve worked through the shift from film to digital. I saw Gregg Toland’s wonderful camera work on The Bishop’s Wife last night, and only afterward did I discover it was a digital print of the original film! It still was beautiful…
