520 1 |a "When Ruth Harriet Louise joined Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio with "more stars than there are in heaven," she was twenty-two years old and the only woman working as a portrait photographer for the Hollywood studios. In a career that lasted from 1925 until 1930, Louise photographed all the stars, contract players, and many of the hopefuls who passed through the studio's gates, including Greta Garbo, Lon Chaney, John Gilbert, Joan Crawford, Marion Davies, and Norma Shearer. This book, which coincides with a traveling retrospective of Louise's work, is the first collection of her remarkable photographs. Containing more than one hundred breathtaking images, it attests to the talent and vision of a surprisingly unknown photographer who formed the images and helped create the popularity of some of our most enduring stars."--Jacket.
