Photo Gallery: Rare Glimpses of Old Hollywood

Cinephiles will certainly appreciate this gallery of old Hollywood publicity shots, rare photographs, and production stills from the dreamy Old Hollywood Tumblr. It’s a lovely curated collection of soundtrack clips, glamorous images, and interview snippets from Tinseltown’s Golden Age through 1975. Catch a glimpse of how Stanley Kubrick approached the shooting of his 1962 classic, Lolita, and see what a 1929 publicity still looked like (and how much more amazing it was than anything Hollywood churns out today) after the jump. Let us know which images wooed you most.
