Complete Life Magazine Photo Archive Now Online at Google


Recommended Posts

Today, Google became the host for the entire Life Magazine photography archive and is viewable (and searchable) here -

http://images.google.com/hosted/life

 

There are methods set-up to browse the archive by topic. One of the prearranged browsing topics is "Academy Awards" (interesting) but a general search under the topic "Hollywood" returns no responses. Hmmm? But Marlon Brando returned multiple pages of images. Go figure.

 

Have a good browse.

*"Is it possible to link to those photos from the forums?"* - FilmFatale

 

Let's see.

"George Chakiris (L), as Bernardo, leading two members of the Sharks in leaping invasion of Jets territory in scene from motion picture "West Side Story."

Location: New York, NY, US

Date taken: August 1960

Photographer: Gjon Mili

(From a browse that took me to photos taken on the set of *West Side Story*)

 

I guess so. At least it previews that it works.

Added -

But it didn't display in the Forums. Hmmm. Let's try the "img src" code.

Now that worked when the "!" markup code wouldn't.

*"Now, how many hours before all these photos show up on eBay as "printed in a modern photo lab from original negative"?"* - ydobon

 

You'll have to let me know as I never go to eBay. But all the photos in the largest formats are watermarked with the "LIFE" imprint so printing a quality image is going to be difficult.

And while I sometimes (often, actually) feel like I'm the only diehard Lauren Bacall fan on these boards, if there are others out there you'll definitely enjoy the 109 pictures in the Bacall photo collection.

 

In particular there's a series of candid photos from 1945 (which, to my surprise, I've never seen before) when she was still a fresh-faced 20 year-old newcomer.

 

I'm not adept at posting photos here, so here are the links to a few of them:
