So much of vintage Hollywood was black & white, even the photographic publicity stills which came out at the time.
Nowadays, with modern technology, you can find beautifully colorised versions of those black & white photographs, and personally, I love the vibrancy of some of those photos which seem to bring the stars to life as if they had just been before the photographer yesterday.
Someone who has spent a lot of creative time and energy in colorisation is Australian Tom Maroudas whose website https://hollywoodpinups.com has hundreds of photos to view and purchase.
From the Silents through to the 1960s, Tom digitally restores, enhances from B&W originals , scans from vintage prints or camera negatives. The photos are then printed on Kodak premium paper.
The 5 sizes of prints range from 8×10 up to 24×30, with prices from $29.95 to $99.95.
Below are some of these beautiful prints. Where possible Tom identifies the date of the photo and the photographer.
The original B&W photo of Greer.
Tom also provides photos for book covers.
