A comprehensive large-format monograph on renowned photographer Bob Willoughby's extraordinary, cinematic life that is a tribute to his remarkable career.

From the 1950s through the 1970s, Bob Willoughby photographed many of the era’s most significant stars in film and jazz. Hired as the first "outside" photographer by the major movie studios, Willoughby captured the most recognizable icons of the time period in rare, candid moments.

This definitive tome includes over 300 of Willoughby’s black-and-white and color images of renowned legends such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Seberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis Presley, Natalie Wood, Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, James Dean, and many more. Additionally, many first-person, insider anecdotes by Bob Willoughby himself accompany his signature images from the sets of beloved classics such as Rebel Without A Cause, My Fair Lady, Rosemary's Baby, and The Graduate, to name just a few.

The ultimate cinema coffee table book, this is the perfect gift for movie lovers, photography enthusiasts, and anyone fascinated by the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Bob Willoughby, (1927-2009) whose photographs transformed the images of Hollywood's biggest stars, was a true pioneer of 20th century photography. Hired by the major film studios, he was an essential link between the filmmakers and major magazines of the time, such as Life and Look.
