Overview

Ava Gardner happily enjoys her footbath between takes of The Barefoot Contessa; a love story starring Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood unfolds under the cameras and continues offscreen during Love with the Proper Stranger; Jean-Luc Godard clowns around, playfully teasing Brigitte Bardot while shooting Contempt; between takes of Anne of the Thousand Days, Elizabeth Taylor works on her gold game in full 16th-century costume.  There was a time when the great movie legends were accessible to photographers simply, naturally, and spontaneously, while they went about the business of being stars.

This is the first time these stolen moments—rare instances of relaxation and intimacy —have been gathered in a single book.  Rehearsals and lunch breaks, pranks and hilarity, mishaps and accidents, games, naps and daydreaming:  Stars on the Set, Stolen Moments brings you the very best behind-the-scenes photos of stars just being themselves.

Editorial Reviews

That's Entertainment
Photographers show us life behind the movie sets with images of some of the biggest stars, from John Wayne to Marlene Dietrich, with each photo, giving the name of the movie, the year, and just enough information about where the star was at that stage of his or her life.
US Weekly
What do stars do after the director yells "cut?" Filled with snaps of stars such as jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman clowning around and Elizabeth Taylor playing golf in full English Tudor regalia.
