    Description

    A Group of Rare Black and White Photographs by Jean Howard from the Set of "How To Marry A Millionaire," 1953. Fourteen total, all original prints with a glossy finish, mainly depicting stars Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable (none of Marilyn Monroe) on the set of the 1953 20th Century Fox film; all shot by Jean Howard -- the 1930s-era actress turned photographer who was married to the Hollywood power player Charles K. Feldman who was MM's agent for a number of years; Howard had access to the set of this now-classic film for a few days where she shot a number of still photographs in-between and during filming; directly from Howard's own files as consigned to this auction by her grand-niece. (Please note a few of the images have slight creasing and some of the negatives, which are not included, appear to have been scratched or dusty when the photographs were printed.)
