By Paolo Mereghetti
Hardcover, 480 pages ($29.95 / Abrams)

Starstruck? You will be after cracking open this artfully packaged “box” of a book with more than 350 revealing images spanning the history of the movies. The photos, many of them rarely published previously, include candid shots of actors and actresses at work and at play, in private moments and caught up in swirls of activity on location for their biggest films, and captured in portraits by some of each era’s top photographers. The who’s who includes Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and such contemporary stars as Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, and hundreds of other luminaries of the silver screen.
