Book Description

29 Oct 2004
A never-before seen, eye-popping collection of "glamour" photographs of Hollywood starlets from the 1940s through the 1970s, captured (in 3D and in the nude) by silent film star and photographer Harold Lloyd. Harold Lloyd shot more than 300,000 photographs using a stereoscopic (3D) camera. Many of the photos were of young women who dreamed of making it big in Hollywood, including Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Dixie Evans and Tura Satana. Here, published for the first time in a book, are 200 of the most lavish, luscious and ludicrous pictures of Hollywood nudes posed against some of the most dramatic and creative backgrounds imaginable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Quite Captivating 15 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We bought this book for a bit of a laugh really, but it's actually very interesting and tends to have people browsing for ages with the 3D glasses on - men and women alike.

Some of the pictures take a few looks to "get" the 3D but on the whole it's excellent.

If you watched Harold Lloyd's rather innocent slap-stick shows on TV it's quite odd to see pictures of naked women he took in 3D!

The pictures are all very tasteful nudes, bare breasts and bottoms only - presented in an artistic way. Nothing gratuitous or sordid.

The picture quality is excellent and Harold obvious took this seriously.

Definitely worth a look if you like nude women, art, photography and 3D pictures (probably covers a lot of people).

4.0 out of 5 stars Use different 3-D glasses 22 July 2006
By Brian C. Holly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Many of the reviews here complain that the anaglyph conversions are misaligned. This is somewhat true of a few pictures. The real problem is that the 3-D glasses provided with the book are just plain terrible and the images suffer considerable 'bleed-through.' Use standard red/cyan 3D glasses and most of the pictures are magnificent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Delusion! 3 Dec 2004
By C. Mugnai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Harold Lloyd was a good 3D photographer and managed the 3D very well, only too well I cannot say the same on whom prepared the photos for the book.

I worked several years using stereo photos, I take stereo photos for hobby and I must say that the 3D photos in the book are bad formed and printed.

Often they are misalligned and the colours of the glasses "lens" don't match with the printed colours.

You may try to use green-red glasses, or perhaps it should be better if the two stereo photos were printed side by side (as in the "3D-Hollywood") and not so badly merged as in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 15 Dec 2004
By Michael Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Yes, some of the 3-D effects might have been done better... but this book has some great pictures, 3D and non-3D, very nicely reproduced, with good content by his granddaughter about Harold Lloyd (at one point one of America's most popular and successful silent screen actors). She writes about his lavish estate, and his obsesson with photography of all types (scenic, travel and nudes). I thought it was fascinating. And he was more than a rich actor who snapped a few (thousand) pictures. These are excellent photographs, the models are pretty, shot with care and a sense of story and playfulness. If you are a pin-up fan you will certainly enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best of that Era 20 Nov 2006
By boomerhead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Lloyd was a facinating and diverse man. Besides film and 3D photography, he also enjoyed painting and magic/mentalism as hobbies - all of which I shared until the 3D bug bit me hard as well.

Any 3D person who peruses eBay is familiar with the type of "nudie" 3D slides of that era. Because of his Hollywood connections, the beauty of Lloyds models stand very well above the standard stuff (in what other 3D collection can Betty Page seem only second-string?). Some of these girls were actually established, professional LA models who never posed nude for anyone else.

Lloyd's artistic sense also shines through, and the props, settings, color, composition and depth rise above nearly all the others in the genre. The book design itself is also a treat (and interesting to actually read!)

Ignore the complaints. Virtually any anaglyph book I've seen came with inferior glasses. Any dedicated 3Der who actually minds the glasses is also likely to have a good, substitute pair on hand. Registration mistakes are uncommon only in the more exclusive, pricey 3D portfolio books - which this book doesn't pretend to be. While I'd love to eventually see a well-made, high-end, dual image book, this is still worthwhile for any 3D, glamour or retro fan, especially at the low prices offered.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish I would have read the reviews before buying this 16 Mar 2006
By Richard B. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The anaglyph conversions were poor, to put it nicely.

(Honestly, I've seen better in TV Guide.)

I'm a stereo aficianado, and was quite disappointed that none of the original stereo photos were included.

Also, not all of the photos were 3-D, and I found it quite annoying to be putting on and taking off the glasses every third page or so.
