Danny Kaye and Goldwyn Girls

Enjoy vintage Hollywood the way it should always look: in the warm and rich comfort of Kodachrome, developed in 1935 for use in photography and cinematography. The photos you'll see here are from Hollywood in Kodachrome, a collection of gorgeous images of Hollywood greats, as collected by David Wills. Although you're likely to recognize all the famous faces here, some stand-outs include Sinatra, a young Ronald Reagan, Rita Hayworth, and the lovely Lucille Ball.
