Item description for Airports & Stars (Spanish Edition) by Vincenzo Mollica...

From the publishers of Spaghetti & Stars and CafA of Stars comes the retro (and prescient) Airports & Stars, a collection of photographs of Hollywood actors, royalty and other celebrities from the golden age of Italian film--the 1950s and 1960s--arriving in Rome, back when comings and goings were event enough to merit a flash, and when the photographers who are now known as paparazzi could walk right up to the airplane steps. Here those independent lensmen--a profession and a genre born in the era documented here, one on the forefront of new realism and photojournalism--capture the salutes and waves, flamboyant and discreet, of Rome's stars as they descended to earth, seizing the mythical something that they seemed to bring with them from the sky to terra firma. Each arrival was a striking performance on a then-novel stage, and the work of paparazzi has preserved this invaluable slice of la dolce vita. Perhaps by bequeathing these charming and glamorous moments to history and extending their subjects' fame into the next century, the paparazzi make amends for all the compromising snapshots with which they troubled their famous subjects, and for spawning the multinational empire of celebrity spy photography that dominates today's news media.

Reviews - What do customers think about Airports & Stars (Spanish Edition)?

Golden Age of Stardom  Mar 22, 2010
This is a superb book for anyone who grew up with, loved, and continues to love these stars of the silver screen from the 60s and back. Sadly the majority of these featured in this collection are no longer with us. Their memory lives on in the film work, radio, and/or TV works that they did. I am reviewing the Spanish edition although the book that I found at a Half Price Books store in clearance for two bucks is the English edition. Doesn't matter - photos are universal and require no translation! Nostalgia and reminiscing too on the time when we de-planed onto the tarmac and no one was kept beyond a security screening point.
