This star-studded compendium summarizes a century of
Hollywood's glamour, power, glory and scandal. Vanity Fair's Hollywood is
edited by Graydon Carter, David Friend and
Christopher Hitchens, veterans of
Britain's nosy Private Eye, famous
for their muckraking and ironic sense of humour. In this delightful collection,
you will find a selection of luminous images, classic essays and amusing
caricatures from the archives of Vanity
Fair dating back to 1914. Lavishly illustrated with 300 colour and
black-and-white photographs, it also offers essays by Dorothy Parker, D.H.
Lawrence and Dominck Dunn and portraits by Cecil Beaton, Annie Leibowitz and
Cameron Crowe: "A completely stunning tour of Hollywood's past and present."
Tom Cruise: "This book is a dynamic reflection of the period and its personalities through the eyes of some great photographers."
Barry Diller: "Every page tops the one before . . . You want it to never end. Vanity Fair's evocation of Hollywood is dazzling."
Sue Mengers: "A magnificent keeper. Stunning photos of everyone I've ever wanted to know."
Martin Scorsese: "Vanity Fair's Hollywood recreates this powerful sensation. Its striking, beautiful photographs-of the icons of the studios' golden age...."
Steven Spielberg: "Here is a remarkable gallery of personal moments and uninhibited vanities captured forever...."
Gore Vidal: "Like a pair of splendid Art Deco bookends...now brought together in a single volume...a kaleidoscope of startling images and urgent voices...."
Lew And Edie Wasserman: "Vanity Fair's Hollywood brings back some wonderful memories and captures the glamour and excitement of the entertainment community."
