The Hollywood Photo Archive is not only a wonderful collection of cinematic history, it captures the collective memories of Hollywood. The gunmen, the gallants, the ghosts and the stars of the big screen are represented in an impressive archive of more than 180,000 pieces. The collection has been assembled over forty years by Director Colin Slater. In Slater’s early days, as he began to learn his craft, it was the great directors, Wilder, Lean and Welles, who advised him to study and learn from the film stills. Slater went on to own an important public relations agency, The Adventurers, in association with the legendary journalist and film executive, Fred Hift. Together with 500 stringers, the company worked on almost every motion picture produced and released in the UK, gathering stills from the stars and press collateral from the studios. Combined with Hift’s lifetime of files the Hollywood Archive was born. The outstanding archive provides a treasure trove of prints for film buffs to discover wonderful film stills, celebrity portraits and heroic stage performances.
