Frank Worth – Freund und Fotograf der großen Hollywoodstars. Hochwertige Edition auf Barytpapier: In den 50er-Jahren ein Schnappschuss – heute ein begehrtes Sammlerobjekt. Frank Worth (1923 - 2000) gehört zu den bedeutendsten Foto-Künstlern seiner Zeit. Weil zahlreiche Stars von Frank Sinatra bis Liz Taylor, von James Dean bis Marilyn Monroe den Fotografen als engen Vertrauten betrachteten, kam er ihnen so nahe wie kein anderer. Das Worthsche Œuvre hebt sich ab von den sterilen Glamourbildern in einstudierten Posen, wie sie zu jener Zeit üblich waren. Posthumer Ruhm: ein rund zehn Millionen Dollar schwerer Nachlass. Offenbar wurde seine Sonderstellung unter den Hollywood-Fotografen erst nach seinem Tod. Beim Ordnen des Nachlasses fand man rund 10.000 Negative, deren Wert das Auktionshaus Christie’s auf rund zehn Millionen Dollar taxierte. Zu Lebzeiten hatte Worth seine Fotos nur sehr verhalten zum Verkauf angeboten. Er empfand sie eher als Erinnerungsstücke, als Schnappschüsse von Freunden, denen gegenüber er sich zu Loyalität verpflichtet sah. Heute sind hochwertige Drucke dieser vermeintlichen Schnappschüsse in aller Welt begehrte Sammlerobjekte. Ein typischer Frank Worth. Diese Aufnahme von Marilyn Monroe und Sammy Davis Jr. entstand im Jahr 1953 am Set von „How to Marry a Millionaire“ („Wie angelt man sich einen Millionär?“). Zwei Legenden, die in einer Drehpause miteinander he-rumalbern: Genau solche Fotos hat nur Worth geschossen. Die Edition wurde als streng limitierter, pixelfreier Silver Gelatine Print auf exquisitem Barytpapier gefertigt. Mit original Studiostempel, nummeriert. Mit Echtheitszertifikat. 195 Exemplare. „Marilyn Monroe – Sammy Davis Jr./ Set how to marry a millionaire, 1953“ Silver Gelatine Print auf Barytpapier, 50 x 40 cm, limitierte Auflage 195 Exemplare, in schwarzer Galerierahmung (70 x 60 cm, Rahmenbreite 2 cm, Rahmentiefe 3 cm.)

The Boy Born Dead: A Story of Friendship, Coura...

Audie Award, Faith-Based Non-Fiction, 2016 In 1953, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, a baby boy was born - dead. The attending physician set his little body aside and tended to his mother for 18 minutes. Now, more than 60 years later, that boy leads an internationally known ministry that encourages hundreds of thousands every year. The Boy Born Dead tells his incredible story from the perspective of his best friend, David Wideman. As a teenager in the small town of Liberty, Missouri, in the late 1960s, David Ring grew up with the challenges that come with cerebral palsy, a result of his 18 minutes of newborn silence. Along with his physical limitations, Ring was orphaned and shuffled from home to home, finally landing in an abusive situation that made him feel unworthy of love and, eventually, unworthy of life. But God had a purpose for Ring's life and sent an agent to help him achieve it. Through the friendship of David Wideman, a boy he met in the halls of Liberty High School, Ring found strength he didn't know he had and went on to face his demons, marry the love of his life, and start an international speaking ministry. Full of hope, this moving story illustrates how friendship and love triumph over adversity. Anyone who faces tough times will treasure this story of hope and courage. 1. Language: English.

Marilyn Monroe was an American actress and model. She became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in 1962. She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes and an orphanage and married for the first time at the age of 16. While working in a factory as part of the war effort in 1944, she met a photographer and began a successful pin-up modeling career. The work led to short-lived film contracts with Twentieth Century-Fox (1946-47) and Columbia Pictures (1948). After a series of minor film roles, she signed a new contract with Fox in 1951. Over the next two years, she became a popular actress with roles in several comedies, including As Young as You Feel and Monkey Business, and in the dramas Clash by Night and Don't Bother to Knock. Monroe faced a scandal when it was revealed that she had posed for nude photos before becoming a star, but rather than damaging her career, the story increased interest in her films. By 1953, Monroe was one of the most bankable Hollywood stars, with leading roles in three films: the noir Niagara, which focused on her sex appeal, and the comedies Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire, which established her star image as a "dumb blonde". Although she played a significant role in the creation and management of her public image throughout her career, she was disappointed at being typecast and underpaid by the studio. 1.

In the best-selling tradition of The Help comes a riveting and profoundly moving memoir set in rural Mississippi during the civil rights era about a white girl coming of age in a repressive society and the woman who gave her the strength to forge her own path - the black nanny who cared for her.  Tena Clark was born in 1953 in a tiny Mississippi town close to the Alabama border, where the legacy of slavery and racial injustice still permeated every aspect of life. On the outside, Tena’s childhood looked like a fairy tale. Her father was one of the richest men in the state; her mother was a regal beauty. The family lived on a sprawling farm and had the only swimming pool in town; Tena was given her first car - a royal blue Camaro - at 12.   But behind closed doors, Tena’s life was deeply lonely and chaotic. By the time she was three, her parents’ marriage had dissolved into a swamp of alcohol, rampant infidelity, and guns. Adding to the turmoil, Tena understood from a very young age that she was different from her three older sisters, all of whom had been beauty queens and majorettes. Tena knew she didn’t want to be a majorette - she wanted to marry one.   On Tena’s 10th birthday, her mother, emboldened by alcoholism and enraged by her husband’s incessant cheating, walked out for good, instantly becoming an outcast in society. Tena was left in the care of her black nanny, Virgie, who became Tena’s surrogate mother and confidante - even though she was raising nine of her own children and was not allowed to eat from the family’s plates or use their bathroom. It was Virgie’s acceptance and unconditional love that gave Tena the courage to stand up to her domineering father, the faith to believe in her mother’s love, and the strength to be her true self.   Combining the spirit of poignant coming-of-age memoirs such as The Glass Castle and vivid, evocative Southern fiction like 1.

It grants the people of Europe a number of fundamental rights and freedoms: right to life, prohibition of torture, prohibition of slavery and forced labour, right to liberty and security, right to a fair trial, no punishment without law, right to respect for private and family life, freedom of thought, conscience and religion, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and association, right to marry, right to an effective remedy, prohibition of discrimination; plus some more by additional protocols to the Convention. Any person who feels that his or her rights are being violated under the ECHR by the authorities in one of the Member States can bring the case to the European Court of Human Rights, established under the Convention. The States are bound by the Court’s decisions.

'My guiltiest pleasure is Harry Stephen Keeler. He may been the greatest bad writer America has ever produced. Or perhaps the worst great writer. I do not know. There are few faults you can accuse him of that he is not guilty of. But I love him.' -- Neil Gaiman An unholy love! That's what young Erlys Janway found herself in the throes of as she awaits word from her brother, Pell Barneyfield, as to whether they are truly blood-related. If he can come up with the proof they're not related -- and then make it to Foleysburg, where MacWhorter's traveling circus is camped -- then Erlys won't be compelled to marry Golden-Tongue, the circus barker. But first Pell'll have to traverse Old Twistibus, a road so crooked they gave it a name. In the meantime, Angus MacWhorter, kindly owner of the circus, is offered $1000 for a $10 diorama of a hanged fish with a crown. What's with that? Only the answer to all of the riddles of this classic 1953 tale, the last Keeler published in English during his lifetime.
