Foreword William Secord
Introduction Robert Dance

Hollywood Dogs showcases an extraordinary selection of photographs from the famous John Kobal Foundation. Taken between 1920 and 1960 during the Golden Age of Hollywood, they feature stars including Humphrey Bogart, Buster Keaton, Audrey Hepburn, Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor, with their dogs. In almost every case, these stunning photographs have never been seen before now.

Hollywood Dogs celebrates the special relationship between these famous owners and their animals. Often caught off-guard, and almost always relaxed and natural, these are photographs of the Hollywood stars as real people.

Amongst the images are some of the most famous dogs in Hollywood films: Lassie; Asta; Rin Tin Tin and Toto from the Wizard of Oz. There are also a few carefully-set-up publicity shots, such as Frank Sinatra on the set of Pal Joey, and Jean Harlow accessorized with a large hat and two Old English sheepdogs.

There are 176 pages and 147 black and white images of classic Hollywood film stars, photographed with dogs of all shapes and sizes.

A perfect gift for film buffs, and for anyone that loves dogs!!!
