During the golden age of Hollywood studios, set photographers documented film shoots to record key particulars: set arrangements, prop placements, blocking, costumes, and hairstyles. A unique photography book unto itself from the commanding archives of Turner Classic Movies, In the Picture collects 150 of these disarming and fascinating documentary images, imparting the delight of vintage Hollywood as well as a wealth of details for all movie lovers. Stills from beloved classics -- Ben-Hur, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, and The Wizard of Oz on up to Giant, The Dirty Dozen, and Bullitt -- reveal masterful set compositions and period details as well as images of actors between takes conferring with directors and crew.

Capturing beloved movie moments both on- and off-camera from the silent era through the '60s, In the Picture provides a rare behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood at work.
