Yvonne De Carlo ~ Hollywood in Kodachrome

Beautiful actress/dancer/singer Yvonne De Carlo, circa the 1940’s, in a kodachrome photo.  De Carlo, along with many other Old Hollywood stars, appears in the book Hollywood in Kodachrome, by David Wills.

I love the rich depth of color of De Carlo’s hair and makeup in this photo.  Stunning!

Marilyn Monroe wears a strapless metallic dress

A young Marilyn Monroe in a costume test for the 1949 film Love Happy.  I like seeing Marilyn with a longer 1940’s-style hairstyle.
