A Frank Sinatra and other stars large group of never-before-seen black and white photographs by Jimmy Van Heusen, 1950s-1960s
Approximately 45; all vintage prints with a matte or glossy finish from the private collection of the songwriter who took most of them (though he does appear in a few) and then developed them himself. Depicting his famous friends in intimate settings (at private parties, on boats, etc.) images include those of (in alphabetical order): Lucille Ball, Tony Bennett, Milton Berle, Yul Brynner, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jimmy Durante, Ava Gardner, Peter Lawford, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Mitchum, Patricia Kennedy Lawford, Sidney Poitier, Frank Sinatra, Robert Wagner, and Natalie Wood, among others. It seems as though Van Heusen was following Sinatra around with a camera as the singer appears in most of these photographs, alongside the other stars noted above. [See LOT 6015]
