A playboy's fascinating archive of rare black and white photographs and other ephemera, 1940s-1970s
From the personal files of Mac Krim, a wealthy polo player and man about town (in the same vein as the more famous Porfirio Rubirosa) who dated Kim Novak for many years. The main part of the collection is approximately 200 black and white photographs; all vintage prints with either a glossy or matte finish; most never-before-seen; depicting Krim and others at countless social events in Hollywood over the decades; many show Krim with Novak at premieres, cocktail parties, and other like functions; others show Krim with Hollywood stars (or just the stars by themselves) and hangers-on (both known and forgotten) at various events. Also included are many other items related to Krim such as letters sent to him, customized Christmas cards he mailed out, personal snapshots, newspaper and magazine clippings, business cards, scraps of paper with handwritten notes, and other similar mementos, all of which shed some light on this mystery man of yesteryear.
