The Movie Star News Collection - containing a vast number of Hollywood photographs taken by Irving Klaw from 1939 onwards - is to auction over two days (April 6-7) in New York.
Photographer Klaw established the Movie Star News store in New York in 1939, which showcased his often-erotic work. It closed last year.
Featuring almost 3 million negatives, posters and photos of stars including Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, highlights include a pair of Bettie Page's "pin-up" shoes as well as a number of rare photographs of the star. Presale estimates range from $60-100 for a handful of pictures, to $100,000 for Page's high heels.
The auction is to take place at The Arader Galleries in New York.
Here at Paul Fraser Collectibles, we too have a number of movie star collectibles in stock.
