Hidden Hollywood: Issur Danielovitch AKA Kirk Douglas Can’t Get a Prom Date

In the beginning of his legendary career, Kirk Douglas (1916 – ) b. Issur Danielovitch, was almost typecast as a well-meaning but ineffectual husband in two fine films, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, 1946, and A Letter to Three Wives, 1949.  But his career ascended into mega-stardom when he played cynical heroes motivated by rage: […]

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

The automobile represents freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains.

During Hollywood’s Golden Age, studio photographers—usually anonymous—shot millions of photos of stars, starlets, and contract players.

Several genres of photos became the bread and butter of the overworked and immensely gifted photographers. The […]
