Lot Details

Bob Willoughby, Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift during the filming of Raintree County, MGM, 1956. Vintage gelatin silver print, 20 x 16 inches (50.8 x 40.6 cm). Signed, stamped and inscribed.

Bob Willoughby began taking photographs in 1939. Between 1948 and 1954, his exhibitions of photographs of jazz musicians and dancers led to a contract with Globe Photos. Later, he worked for Harper's Bazaar, where his photographs illustrated arts and culture articles.

His big break came when he was assigned by six magazines to photograph Judy Garland during the filming of "A Star is Born." In 1963, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled camera for on-set still photography. This led to other innovations that enabled him to take still photographs identical to the film footage. Willoughby lived in Vence, France until his death in 2009.
