Vintage Hollywood Magazines Featuring Lucille Ball Made Available

Fergie may sing about "The Glamorous Life," but Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, Judy Garland and Elvis lived it. And now you can relive it in the pages of Hollywood Studio Magazine Vintage Collection.

Recently Ralph Benner, publisher of the legendary Hollywood Magazines such as Rona Barrett's Hollywood and Tiger beat, opened the vaults and has made
available to the public vintage issues of Hollywood Studio Magazine. Stored in a warehouse for over 20 years, these magazines are in mint condition and take you back to the real "Glamorous Life" of the Hollywood legends. The stars who lit up the screen and yes, the gossip columns, too, come alive with elegant color photos, interesting behind-the-scenes stories and a fascinating look into the business that made them stars.

If you remember the glittering life style of the "old Hollywood," or just want to find out more about what it was really like when stars walked the red carpet in mink and sable and long cigarette holders, let Hollywood Studio Magazine take you there.

For more information, go to Hollywood Studio Magazine. Issues of the magazine are limited and once they are gone, they are gone forever. The glamorous life of old Hollywood may be gone forever, too, but relive it in the pages of Hollywood Studio Magazine.
