    Before there was commercial portraiture photography in Hollywood, there were incredibly talented illustrators depicting the stars on the posters and magazine covers. Here is one of the best, Marland Stone. This is one of the best Constance Bennett renderings you'll ever see. Ms. Stone had a knack for capturing the very essence of the star she was painting. Inside are full page ads for Technicolor featuring Loretta Young, Song O' My Heart, Follow Thru', The Bad Man, Moby Dick, Dixiana, etc. There are full page sepia portraits of top stars such as Greta Garbo, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Lupe Velez, Richard Dix, pre-Code portrait of Christine Maple, etc. Articles with photographs of Clara Bow, Lon Chaney, etc. There are vintage full page color ads for Camels, Old Gold, Colgate, etc. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details.
