The Hollywood Collection: Photographs & Autographs

Auction Details

The glamour and myth of Hollywood was built during the 1930s and '40s by stars like Marilyn Monroe, Clara Bow, Clark Gable, Elizabeth Taylor, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, Greta Garbo and others. These timeless stars continue to awe, inspire and entertain us today. Blacksparrow Auctions is pleased to present a collection of original vintage stills and portraits that showcase the enduring magnetism and romance of Hollywood. Some of the highlight photos include scenes from There's No Business Like Show Business with Marilyn Monroe, keybook stills of Clara Bow, Jean Harlow portraits, Humphrey Bogart stills from Key Largo, and many more. The collection includes Hollywood royalty such as Steve McQueen, Ingrid Bergman, Rita Hayworth, Errol Flynn, The Marx Brothers, Jayne Mansfield, Brigitte Bardot and Greta Garbo. Also featured are film stills from Stanley Kubrick films, Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Misfits, Bonnie and Clyde, The Three Stooges, and Alfred Hitchcock films. Altogether the collection spans the 1920s, pre-Code and silent era to the 1970s.

We are further excited to bring you a unique collection of signed film books that include autographs from some of the greatest actors and performers of the silver screen. One of the books, entitled The Bad Guys, contains dozens of signatures from some of Hollywood's most memorable villains: James Cagney, Bette Davis, Edward G. Robinson, Cesar Romero, Joan Crawford, Boris Karloff, Vincent Price and more. Another book, entitled The Fondas, contains over 250 autographs of actors, directors and producers who have worked with Henry, Peter and Jane Fonda, including Olivia De Havilland, Sandra Dee, Alice Faye, Mel Ferrer, George Hamilton, Elsa Lanchester, Dorothy Lamour, Fred MacMurray, Roddy McDowell, Burgess Meredith, Gregory Peck and so many, many more. There are 37 of these books, all filled with scores of original autographs collected over seven decades by a former journalist and studio publicist. This is an impressive and incomparable compilation that will be the cornerstone of any Hollywood autograph collection.
