"Just when you thought you knew all there was to know about your favorite film-every beat and every line-this book is a good reminder that Old Hollywood can still surprise us."-Frontiers Magazine
"Not only do we see the movie being made; we see the photographer at work, too. If he or she's been shooting fast, the repetitions almost constitute a stop-motion echo of the movie itself-kind of a rough draft, or even a proto-GIF. You can see, and almost hear, the ratchet-click of the hand and eye at work, shooting and winding, shooting and winding, as the lens roves the set-and gradually noses in on the one frame that captures it all." -New York Magazine
"The insight into the 71 films that are featured makes for fascinating reading and is a terrific addition to the often-unguarded moments that are captured on film." -North Shore News

Longworth's book is divided into three sections: 'The Golden Age of the Contact Sheet' (1951-66); 'An Industry in Transition' (1967-80); and 'The Last Days of Celluloid' (1981-1997). Within each section, she offers up two-four pages of contact sheets and text on individual movies. For instance, the 1951-66 chapter includes such classics as 'African Queen,' 'From Here to Eternity,' 'A Star is Born,' 'Giant' and 'Some Like It Hot.' The 1967-80 section features 'Bonnie and Clyde,' 'Dirty Harry,' 'The Godfather,' 'Annie Hall' and so on. Among the photographers were such renowned 'photogs' such as George Hurrell, Cecil Beaton and Ernst Haas.
In short, HOLLYWOOD FRAME BY FRAME is a marvelous, entertaining look inside 'tinsel town' movie-making. It offers up hundreds of rarely- or never-seen snaps of actors, cast and crew at work or at leisure. Recommended.
I found out she also has been writing and when I found out about this book I had to get it!
At my age, many of the things she talks about on her podcast are often things I remember hearing about when I was a kid. And then in most of the 1970's the family business was 2 movie theaters in the Southern California area so movies and movie history was quite often the family topic.
This book is excellent if you love Hollywood history and like a really good coffee table book and conversation starter with like minded friends. The range of these test shots is very good encompassing quite a few years and stars of the different eras. Karina's writing also gives great insight to much of the stories to go along with the photos, very good!
