    Hitchcock, Nureyev, Others, Candid Shots by Irv Steinberg, 1960s. Irv Steinberg's colorful career as a celebrity photographer eloquently speaks for itself in these ten pages (over 130 images) of b&w picture proofs, capturing all variety of political and show business history. The pictures present Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Adlai Stevenson visiting Robert Preston backstage after a performance of Ben Franklin in Paris (November 23, 1964), Luci Baines Johnson at the "Night of Stars" benefit at Madison Square Garden (also November 23, 1964), Alfred Hitchcock, Rudolph Nureyev, Ann-Margret, Bobby Darin, Carol Channing, Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett at rehearsals for the 1965 Inaugural Gala at the Washington D.C. Armory (January 18, 1965), Robert F. Kennedy addressing the "Baseball Writers of America" (January 31, 1965, with Yogi Berra among those in attendance), President Johnson at a Madison Square Garden political rally (Octobe 15, 1965), Charles Lindbergh honored at the Waldorf on the 50th anniversary of his historic flight (May 20, 1977), plus Milton Berle, Sam Goldwyn, Gene Kelly, and Louis Jourdan, as well as many negatives from this meld of political and popular culture. Very Good to Excellent condition.
