Glamorous Latin Movie Stars of Early Hollywood

STARRLIGHT HOLLYWOOD LAND 2012

By Steve Starr

Flying over the gorgeous, snow-dusted southern ridges of the purple blue mountain ranges towards the magic city is always a thrill. It was Oscar weekend.

In Los Angeles, I was greeted by my amenable host, actor Ken Brown, formerly of Chicago and now living in Hollywood, who had invited me to stay at his suite located directly across the street from the famed 1927 Roosevelt Hotel, home to the very first Academy Awards. There, I was a few quick steps away from Hollywood Boulevard and the Oscar ceremonies at the Kodak Theatre.

Steve Starr

On Oscar morning I photographed journalists and reporters from around the world gathered in Hollywood to cover the biggest event of the year. These are the faces that will appear in my future exhibition, The Face of News.

Columnist Irene Michael (I On the Scene) invited me to photograph and report on the exciting 22nd Annual ‘Night of 100 Stars’, produced by renowned agent Norby Walters at the iconic 1912 Beverly Hills Hotel, a lush haven for the most famous stars and personalities in the world.

Accompanied by my wonderful host, Ken Brown, I met and photographed directors, producers, actors, and models, but also dozens of past Oscar winners and stars of old Hollywood – glimpses of a beautiful world that no longer exists. Here, they all assembled to walk a 250’ long Red Carpet, mingle and dine to view the most watched television event in history in the world – the Oscars.

Maria Montez ~ Rita Hayworth ~ Lupe Velez ~ Carmen Miranda ~ Dolores Del Rio

Five women born in the early 20th Century made their way to a small, magical town in California named Hollywood, where they were revered for their talent and beauty.

They had lucrative careers of dazzling glamour that were riddled with outrageous behavior, flashy headlines, and savage disappointment.  Adored for their presence, charm and flair, they were also worshipped and betrayed by lovers and husbands, and surrounded by improbable circumstances while idolized worldwide by millions.

Beautifully designed and meticulously researched, Starrlight: Glamorous Latin Movie Stars of Early Hollywood presents colorful biographical accounts of  cinematic stars Maria Montez, Rita Hayworth, Lupe Velez, Carmen Miranda and Dolores Del Rio.   

Author Steve Starr combines the fantasyland of silver screen fame and fortune with intrigue and heartbreak as he chronicles for us the extraordinary lives of these celebrated performers.   

Every page is an especially creative feast for the eyes. This elegant silver linen-bound limited edition depicts over 100 images, including 50 rarely-seen photos of the featured actresses, many displayed in exquisite Art Deco glass frames from the author’s acclaimed personal collection.

Starr intersperses original iconic film posters, sheet music illustrations and fan magazine covers with evocative prose and vintage pictures that include the images of 28 other Hollywood stars who were famous in a world that no longer exists.

This is an art book treasure for the ages, and a portrait of Starr’s unreserved passion for his material.
