Glamour and Irresistible Appeal: In-Depth Pictorial Story of Hollywood's Golden Age
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Charming" and "delightful" are the two words that best describe The Way We Wore: Styles of the 1930s and '40s by Marsha Hunt, a well-respected star of the golden age of Hollywood movies. The book, an art book of 400 pages featuring approximately 350 8 x 10 black-and white pictures, consists of the photos Marsha Hunt received after each of her fashion or film shoots.
The book is beautifully produced and artfully assembled by era (the 1930s and the 1940s). Each decade is broken into categories such as "evening wear," "hair styles" even "muffs" (fur handwarmers). Of course, there are many photos from her films where she is shown with stars such as a young John Wayne, Robert Young, Bob Cummings, Gene Kelly, Jack Benny playing a gondolier, and many other notables of the era.
The book is a treasure, and so is Marsha Hunt. In her commentary, she is down-to-earth, self-effacing, and has a delightful sense of humor about the era and about herself. About Marsha Hunt Marsha Hunt started
