Magnum also negotiated exclusive contracts to document the making of the films of some of the most respected directors in the world ' works now considered classics. Photographers Eve Arnold, RenÃ© Burri, Bruce Davidson, Elliot Erwitt, Josef Koudelka, Eugene Smith and Dennis Stock as well as Capa, Seymour and Cartier-Bresson are represented in this exhibit.
The show at the ACA features dramatic, intimate and startling moments behind the making of films such as On the Waterfront, Zabriskie Point, Moby Dick, Notorious and On the Beach. There's a who's-who of directors: Huston, Alfred Hitchcock, Michelangelo Antonioi, Jean Renoir, Jean Cocteau, Sidney Lumet, Charlie Chaplin, and of course the stars ' Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, Gregory Peck, James Dean, Eli Wallich, Gary Cooper and Rita Hayworth. One stunning image after another will confound film aficionados, revealing a seldom seen side of Hollywood. But more than any other, the legend we can't get enough of ' the joyous, childlike, and tragic faces of the mercurial Marilyn Monroe ' fill image after image. This show won't be around long, and it's not to be missed, especially for film fans and photography connoisseurs.
