Breygent TV, Films & Sci-Fi Marilyn Monroe (Photos by Shaw Family Archives) 2007 Marilyn Monroe (Photos by Shaw Family Archives) 2007 LT72 - Photographer Sam Shaw was famous for his relaxed, natural looking pictures of film stars a legacy preserved by his family who are named as the source of these pictures. The cards, mainly black and white, are enhanced on the fronts by the addition of gold glitter to certain parts of the card. The tragic story of Marilyn is well known, but these cards capture her at her best. Card number 1 quotes Shaw as saying “I just want to show this fascinating woman with her guard down, at work, at ease off-stage.. and as she often was – alone”, which he certainly achieved. The card backs are filled with facts about the star and card 72 is a checklist. A superb set. Size 89 x 64mm.

Tribute Collectables TV, Films & Sci-Fi Paulette Goddard 2015 Paulette Goddard 2015 20 - These black and white cards are a tribute to Paulette Goddard, born Paulette Levy, who died in 1990. She made her stage debut in 1926 as a dancer in Broadway impresario Ziegfeld’s ‘No Foolin’ and appeared as an extra in films for many years until the turning point in her career when she began dating Charlie Chaplin. He cast her as his leading lady in ‘Modern Times’ in 1936 and this led to further films such as ‘The Young in Heart’. She was considered for the Scarlett O’Hara role in Gone with the Wind and starred successfully with Bob Hope and Fred Astaire, but largely retired after her marriage to Erich Remarque. The numbered backs give a history of her life and career. Size 68 x 36mm.
