Picture Galore: Getting Close


Being in a mad mood, I tried cheering myself up by hunting for celebrity pictures of the more personal sort. I found a couple of new ones I had not seen before, some of them apparently shot by Yul Brynner. (I say "apparently", since I have trouble finding the sources of the photographs and I am damaged by university studies.)

Here are some of my finds. They actually got me into a slightly better mood.

So many great photos! I love the one of David Niven, Bob Hope, Clark Gable and Cary Grant laughing together. I'm pretty sure that's from a TV special that was being put on in the 1960s. I tried to find out specifically but the LIFE photos documents are down :(

The one of Liz Taylor dancing/jumping is really fun too.

These are really gorgeous. Gable/Monroe for the win.
