Kodachrome film saturated the 1940s with an unprecedented explosion of color. Movie audiences, accustomed to seeing photographs of their favorite stars on magazine covers, billboards, and cinema marquees in monochrome or black-and-white, were suddenly enthralled as their idols came to life in vibrant hues as flesh-and-blood human beings. For the first time, the world was treated to the glory of Rita Hayworth's auburn hair, Gary Cooper's blue eyes, Betty Grable's rosy cheeks, and the multicolored fruit bouquets of Carmen Miranda's hats. Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the world's largest private collections of original Kodachromes and color photographs from the 1940s. Now, in Hollywood in Kodachrome, he has gathered spectacular, museum-quality work from many of the great photographers of Hollywood's golden era—George Hurrell, Clarence Sinclair Bull, John Engstead, Paul Hesse, Ernest Bachrach, Bernard of Hollywood, Robert Coburn, Ray Jones, Bud Fraker, Frank Powolny, Eugene Robert Richee, and many others—to create this stunning portfolio of images that pays homage to the richest, clearest, most brilliant, and archivally dependable film stock in history. Among the highlights: Rare and classic images digitally restored from their original 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10 Kodachrome sheet transparencies, vintage Carbro and dye transfer prints, and modern Cibachrome prints. Never-before-seen publicity photos, scene stills, and work shots from many of Hollywood's most beloved films of the 1940s. Previously unpublished portraits of Clark Gable, Bette Davis, Cary Grant, Lana Turner, Errol Flynn, Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, and many others. Rare "posed candids" and behind-the-scenes photos of stars at play, poolside, relaxing at home, and with family. Unpublished outtakes of stars in famous ad campaigns, including Max Factor, Lux, Lipton Tea, Lucky Strike, and Royal Crown Cola. Never-before-seen WWII patriot photography of stars in service uniform and posing with the American flag. Pairing more than 250 first-generation photographs with vintage magazine covers, advertisements, movie posters, quotes from photographers, and a personal foreword by Hollywood's "Queen of Technicolor," Rhonda Fleming, Hollywood in Kodachrome is an unforgettable showcase of a time when movies were truly glamorous and color photography reigned supreme at its most luscious.

In 1942, Bill Manbo (1908-1992) and his family were forced from their Hollywood home into the Japanese American internment camp at Heart Mountain in Wyoming. While there, Manbo documented both the bleakness and beauty of his surroundings, using Kodachrome film, a technology then just seven years old, to capture community celebrations and to record his family's struggle to maintain a normal life under the harsh conditions of racial imprisonment. Colors of Confinement showcases sixty-five stunning images from this extremely rare collection of color photographs, presented along with three interpretive essays by leading scholars and a reflective, personal essay by a former Heart Mountain internee. The subjects of these haunting photos are the routine fare of an amateur photographer: parades, cultural events, people at play, Manbo's son. But the images are set against the backdrop of the barbed-wire enclosure surrounding the Heart Mountain Relocation Center and the dramatic expanse of Wyoming sky and landscape. The accompanying essays illuminate these scenes as they trace a tumultuous history unfolding just beyond the camera's lens, giving readers insight into Japanese American cultural life and the stark realities of life in the camps. Also contributing to the book are: Jasmine Alinder is associate professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she coordinates the program in public history. In 2009 she published Moving Images: Photography and the Japanese American Incarceration (University of Illinois Press). She has also published articles and essays on photography and incarceration, including one on the work of contemporary photographer Patrick Nagatani in the newly released catalog Desire for Magic: Patrick Nagatani--Works, 1976-2006 (University of New Mexico Art Museum, 2009). She is currently working on a book on photography and the law. Lon Kurashige is associate professor of history and American studies and ethnicity at the University of Southern California. His scholarship focuses on racial ideologies, politics of identity, emigration and immigration, historiography, cultural enactments, and social reproduction, particularly as they pertain to Asians in the United States. His exploration of Japanese American assimilation and cultural retention, Japanese American Celebration and Conflict: A History of Ethnic Identity and Festival, 1934-1990 (University of California Press, 2002), won the History Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies in 2004. He has published essays and reviews on the incarceration of Japanese Americans and has coedited with Alice Yang Murray an anthology of documents and essays, Major Problems in Asian American History (Cengage, 2003). Bacon Sakatani was born to immigrant Japanese parents in El Monte, California, twenty miles east of Los Angeles, in 1929. From the first through the fifth grade, he attended a segregated school for Hispanics and Japanese. Shortly after Pearl Harbor, his family was confined at Pomona Assembly Center and then later transferred to the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming. When the war ended in 1945, his family relocated to Idaho and then returned to California. He graduated from Mount San Antonio Community College. Soon after the Korean War began, he served with the U.S. Army Engineers in Korea. He held a variety of jobs but learned computer programming and retired from that career in 1992. He has been active in Heart Mountain camp activities and with the Japanese American Korean War Veterans.

Dans les années 1940, le Kodachrome fut à l'origine d'une explosion de couleurs sans précédent. Le public des cinémas, habitué à voir des photographies monochromes ou en noir et blanc de ses stars préférées en couverture des magazines, sur les panneaux d'affichage et au fronton des cinémas, fut ravi de pouvoir soudain découvrir ses idoles, pour ainsi dire en chair et en os, dans des couleurs éclatantes. C'était la première fois qu'il pouvait apprécier l'éclat auburn de la chevelure de Rita Hayworth, les yeux bleus de Gary Cooper, les joues roses de Betty Grable et les chapeaux multicolores, ornés de fruits, de Carmen Miranda. David Wills, conservateur et défenseur du patrimoine photographique, a réuni une des plus importantes collections particulières de Kodachrome et de photographies en couleurs des années 1940. Pour Hollywood en Kodachrome, il a sélectionné des oeuvres spectaculaires qui, dignes d'entrer au musée, sont dues à un grand nombre de photographes de l'âge d'or d'Hollywood : George Hurrell, Clarence Sinclair Bull, John Engstead, Paul Hesse, Ernest Bachrach, Bernard of Hollywood, Robert Coburn, Ray Jones, Bud Fraker, Frank Powolny, Eugene Robert Richee et bien d'autres encore. Il a ainsi créé un superbe album de photographies rendant hommage à un film aux couleurs riches, claires et éclatantes, qui est en outre celui ayant le mieux résisté à l'épreuve du temps dans toute l'histoire de la photographie.
