Who can resist a photograph of a famous face, that irresistible glance at
somebody already familiar to millions, surrounded by the aura of a spotlight,
public acclaim, or outstanding achievement.
A quarter of a century of photographic reminiscences fill this delightfully
informal "Who's Who" of the great and near great in the diverse worlds of the
lively arts; politics, international society, literature, and the fine arts - a
must for theater and movie fans, for nostalgia buffs, and for all who are
d azzled by the indefinable magic generated by celebrities. As a leading
theatrical attorney, L. Arnold Weissberger has been at home in the world of
creative talents for many years, and photographed many of the public
personalities of our time. In his office, at his home, at intimate parties, in
the theater, even on the street, his camera has captured people whose names are synonymous with fame. Many of them are friends and acquaintances, and Mr. Weissberger supplements their photographs with witty personal anecdotes and recollections - about Alice B. Toklas, Gian Carlo Menotti, Tyrone Power, George Balanchine, and Gloria Swanson, to name but a few.
The book is illustrated with almost 1,500 photo- graphs, 642 of which are in
full color, and is highlighted by specially written appreciations by Sir Noel
Coward, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Sir John Gielgud, Anita Loos, Igor Stravinsky,
Dame Rebecca West, and Ors on Welles. An informative biographical index adds major reference value to this warm and affectionate look at some of the world's most noticed people.
