The Golden Age of Hollywood began in the 1920s as silent films became a growing presence in entertainment. The stars of classic Hollywood films exemplified the glitz and glamour of a time when zoot suits inspired controversy and countless women imagined themselves eating pastries in front of a Tiffany store window. While a lot has changed since the early 20th century, the spirit of the era remains memorialized on the silver screen and in photographs from behind the scenes

Photos of old Hollywood fashion don't stop with Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and Audrey Hepburn. Behind-the-scenes legends like makeup artist Jack Pierce were also captured working on iconic films like Creature from the Black Lagoon, Werewolf of London, and many more. Pictures from Hollywood's Golden Age remind us of the legendary performances of Elizabeth Taylor, Lucille Ball, Hattie McDaniel, and countless other members of Hollywood royalty.
