Friday, October 01, 2004 Books: Harold Lloyd's Hollywood Nudes in 3D!

Editorial Review

In Hollywood Nudes in 3D! a dazzling array of Hollywood starlets, including Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Dixie Evans, and Tura Satana, come to life in all of their enticing loveliness.

Harold Lloyd, star of such classic silent films as Safety Last and The Freshman, shot more than 300,000 photographs with a stereoscopic (3D) camera. Many of the photos were of young women who dreamed of making it big in Hollywood. Here--for the first time ever in book form--are 200 of Lloyd's most lavish, luscious, and ludicrous pictures of Hollywood nudes posed against some of the most dramatic and creative backgrounds imaginable. Approximately 75 are reproduced in tantalizing 3D, and can be viewed with the aid of the special "Harold Lloyd-style" glasses included with the book.

The book was assembled by his granddaughter Suzanne Lloyd and Robert Wagner. Wagner also wrote the intro.
