Of course it's limited to 3D models of his era. So maybe a bit dated insofar as the stars are concerned.
3D a wee bit difficult on the page. maybe it needs cutting out and a proper viewer.
Interesting 'though and poss. worthwhile for Stereo collectors.

Most photos are lovely, some even excellent. Harold Lloyd was a dedicated photographer and an excellent stereoscopist.

Seeing Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield (to name the most enblematic) stand out in relief is quite an experience !

GREAT book, lovely stereo work. Well printed. However, came without the required viewer.
Look for a Loreo viewer or similar to bring it to life

HASH(0x93c5b1e0) out of 5 stars A Lesson From a Master 25 Jun. 2008
By Christopher Robert Mohr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am a 79 year old retired photographer. I have been involved in three dimensional photography since 1952. In that time I have taken several thousand stereo slides, but in no way do I equal the stereoscopic accomplishments of Harold Lloyd. The man was one of my idols not only because of his achievments in stereography, but because of his abilities as a consummate performer in motion pictures.

This book is meaningless to the one eyed mind. Those whose satisfaction is gratified by a one eyed picture of reality are now being slowly awakened to the fact that we see in three dimensions, something some of us have been aware of for the past fifty-six years . . . and, much longer. Because of new technology and the public's realization that we see in 3D (how long did that take to come about?) stereoscopy will finally come into it's own.

This book is one of my Bibles and I think that when people realize what they are seeing out of BOTH eyes, they will embrace, enjoy and cherish this volume as much as I do.

Let me add that Harold Lloyd's granddaughter Suzzane is one of the most gorgeous women in the world and there is no way possible that I could wish her more happiness and well being.

HASH(0x93c5b234) out of 5 stars great stereoscopy 23 Feb. 2013
By M. Yarwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are 67 pairs of stereoscopic photos reproduced very nicely. They are mostly well composed shoots with an eye to the depth, so Harold was obviously a good photographer. Unfortunately the images on pages 22, 81, 83, 89 and 93 are the wrong way around but may be viewed by the crosseyed technique, which i don't like myself.
Another reviewer says he doesn't get the 3d effect, you need special glasses or a viewer, which if you get the book second hand may be missing.

HASH(0x93f9cb94) out of 5 stars Hollywood of old in parallel 3D format 6 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book contains a nice set of 3D snapshots and composed photos, mostly from the nineteen fifties & sixties. All with a star or Hollywood theme of some sort. I think it was a good choice to print these images in parallel stereo 3D. A choice that was unfortunately changed to, very poorly done, anaglyph (red/blue) images in "Hollywood Nudes in 3-D" (that's another review).

3-D HOLLYWOOD has too many psudo-stereo images (L/R printed on the wrong sides). There shouldn't be any of course. One may learn to free view cross-eyed if one doesn't already know how to. Of course if you are using a stereoscope, as most readers certainly would be for viewing the proper L/R images, it can be a jarring and disorienting when a R/L ("psudo") images is encountered. Casual viewers may not realize why some images look odd so I marked all of the "x-eyed" images with a pencil in my copy. p. 22, 34, 38, 83, 89, 93, 95.

The book is enjoyable and would make a good gift for someone who is crazy about 3-D or about Hollywood of the fifties. It's worth the price just for the thirteen rare stereo images of Marilyn Monroe - to a true fan.

Of the two books of Harold Lloyd's 3D photos that Suzanne Lloyd has published this is the better one for stereo 3D images. If you have to have nudes the other one (HOLLYWOOD NUDES IN 3D) has them in 2D & 3D but I wouldn't suggest that book for the 3D images.

I recommend the LOREO LITE 3D VIEWER as an excellent low cost stereo viewer to accompany the book, if you don't already have a viewer.

HASH(0x9451bac8) out of 5 stars There Are a Few Interesting Shots Here, But... 15 Dec. 2014
By ridetheory - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have noted, there are a lot of photos where the right and left image are swapped -- around 10% of the photos in the book, actually. There are also quite a few technically bad pictures -- there are actually two where you can see the reflection of Lloyd's flash in a window. The majority of the remainder are mediocre candid shots that just happen to be of celebrities.

I would like see more of Lloyd's staged shots, which were pretty good. The poolside sessions he did with Marilyn Monroe are great, and I liked his self-portrait where he posed in profile with an infinity of reflections receding into the distance. Unfortunately, these good shots only make up a small proportion of the book.

A few notes on the photo reproduction: There is only one 3D image per page, and the two photos that make it up are quite large. This makes free-viewing impossible for me, as the center of the two images is substantially further apart than my eyes. I tried to use the OWL viewer from one of Brian May's stereoscopic books (which works with antique stereo cards) but the images were simply too large for it. The included lorgnette viewer works adequately.

HASH(0x93c5bd5c) out of 5 stars Good, but not great. 23 Oct. 2015
By Martin Andrade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Some interesting photos, some of which were published the wrong way that made the 3D not work right (mentioned in other reviews). Be sure, if you get a book without a viewer, to use the Loreo Lite cardboard viewer, or something similar. As far as 3D photography goes, there is better stuff out there.
