Now, with HOLLYWOOD IN KODACHROME, Wills offers a stunning gallery of hundreds of impossibly lush, full-colour photos of the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age. Photographed using late 1940s sheet Kodachrome - a film stock that remains legendary for its tonal range, colou r accuracy, and detail - the silver screen's elite are brilliantly captured in unparalleled quality.
