Glamour of the Gods

The next big photo exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London is Glamour of the Gods: Hollwood Portraits, a celebration of Hollywood portraiture from the industry’s golden age 1920 to 1960. The 70 photos from the John Kobal Foundation include Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and show how glamour photos helped build their careers. Shown here is George Hurrell's 1934 portrait of Joan Crawford (cropped). This looks a great show for nostalgia. Shame about the price: £6 adults, £5.50 silver surfers. Not one for the kids. The show runs from 7 July to 23 October (title link).
