Overview

This wonderful book takes you on an architectural tour into the lives of over 100 early demi-Gods of the Silver Screen. Preserved on postcards, these images are as collectible today as they were when first bought by tourists who flocked to the burgeoning film capital of Hollywood. Then, as now, visitors paid to ride past these homes, hoping above all else to glimpse one of the giants of the screen so that a little bit of star dust might rub off on them. Many of the stars are actually pictured on the original postcard of the homes, and others are shown with their portrait postcards from the era. Short biographies of the celebrities illuminate this golden era of entertainment. These highly collectible images, produced between 1905 and the early 1970s, have been organized alphabetically, from Bud Abbott to Jane Withers, to help fans find their favorite celebrities. A current value guide will help collectors compile their own treasuries of these precious Hollywood souvenirs.
