Leading Men by Julie Welch and Louise Brody

In a classic scene from Broadway Melody of 1938, Judy Garland gazed into Clark Gable's eyes and sang "You Made Me Love You." She was clutching not the man himself, but a glamorous photograph. These carefully contrived pictures, used by the film studios to publicize their most celebrated male stars, not only fueled the adulation of the fans but also exerted as strong an influence on male style as did the films they publicized.

Leading Men brings together some 300 portraits, stills, and brilliantly staged off-screen shots - encompassing the exotic matinee idols of the silent era as well as today's international super.stars. They capture every image of the twentieth century male idol - from Douglas Fairbanks to Clint Eastwood, Cary Grant to Marlon Brando, and James Dean to Sean Penn.
