"Lush and glorious..." - Vanity Fair
Harold Lloyd, along with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, was one of the greatest stars of the silent film era, appearing in such classics as Safety Last! and The Freshman. He was also an avid photographer with a passion for stereoscopic photography, or 3-D. In 1947 he began taking pictures of family and friends, including Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and Ronald Reagan. During his lifetime he took more than 300,000 photographs, thousands of which featured starlets and models who posed nude in front of some of the most spectacular and creative backdrops and scenery.
Collected here for the first time by Lloyd’s granddaughter, Suzanne Lloyd, and now in paperback, Harold Lloyd’s Hollywood Nudes in 3-D! presents the most lavish, luscious, and, yes, ludicrous photographs of Hollywood nudes from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s in all kinds of settings, including Lloyd’s luxurious Greenacres estate, the Grand Canyon, and studios filled with outrageous props such as faux flowers, animal pelts, and Christmas kitsch. There are 200 photographs in all, 50 of them rendered in 3-D and viewable with the special Harold Lloyd–style 3-D spectacles for an enhanced and extraordinary visual experience!
Suzanne Lloyd is the granddaughter of Harold Lloyd and was raised by him at his magnificent estate, Greenacres, in Beverly Hills, California. She was executive producer of the documentary Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius and author of 3-D Hollywood and Harold Lloyd: Master Comedian. She lives in Holmby Hills, California.
