‘Starstruck – Vintage Movie Posters from Classic Hollywood’ features Resnick’s collection, with reproductions of 250 posters and forty stills from a golden age of Hollywood, from 1912 to 1962. In a moving introduction, Resnick relates how his love of vintage movie art translated into a career as a collector and the founder of the Motion Picture Arts Gallery. Resnick’s account offers anecdotes about how he managed to acquire such stellar film artwork, as well as historical information about the stars and films shown on the pieces he collected. Guiding the reader through the posters and stills of his collection, Resnick provides a tour of cinematic history, starting in the silent film era and continuing up to ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ (1961). By showcasing several posters for each performer – such as Lillian Gish, the Marx Brothers, Marilyn Monroe, John Barrymore, and Audrey Hepburn – Resnick offers a method of charting the evolution of each movie star’s career. Offering both a chronological and thematic organization, in later chapters Resnick discusses some of Hollywood’s legendary directors and films, and critiques fantastic graphic art from little-known films. Bonus material includes a list of Resnick’s fifty favorite one-sheets, helpful tips for the collector, and a glossary of terms and poster sizes. A book for every collector and film buff, ‘Starstruck’ offers an illustrated, personal tour of a bygone age of the motion picture advertising industry.
