Elvis Presley would have been the first to laugh at the mad godlike status he attained after death but he would have surely identified with the human gospel-haunted need such adoration rises out of. He shared that need and courted it. He could sing and move with a spellbinding violence and grace. Yet his nature was also marked by a startling passivity - an eerily contented lack of ambition at his essence that kept him from growing after his first fiery years of success. That early fire still burns nevertheless and his mythical figure remains an omnipresent fixture today.In "The Movie Icon" series people talk about Hollywood glamour about studios that had more stars than there are in heaven about actors who weren't actors but were icons. Other people talk about these things "Taschen" shows you. "Movie Icons" is a series of photo books that feature the most famous personalities in the history of cinema. These 192-page books are visual biographies of the stars. For each title series editor Paul Duncan has painstaking selected approximately 150 high quality enigmatic and sumptuous portraits colorful posters and lobby cards rare film stills and previously unpublished candid photos showing the stars as they really are. These images are accompanied by concise introductory essays by leading film writers each book also includes a chronology a filmography and a bibliography and is peppered with apposite quotes from the movies and from life.More bang for your buck!
