In PICTURING THE ’50s, acclaimed Los Angeles Mirror photographer Neil Clemans takes us from Day 1 at the paper, until the day the presses stopped for the last time in 1962.

He regales us with stories about Debbie Reynolds at her first screen test, triple-D Main Street Follies striptease artist Tempest Storm, Fountainhead author Ayn Rand and her mirrored bedroom, Sammy Davis Jr. partying at home with Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, and Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley on the road to movie stardom.

Mixed in is a glimpse of Candy Barr, babe of Hollywood tough guy Mickey Cohen; screen legend Marlon Brando acting out; and skullduggery at the Los Angeles Police Department. It is “the way things really were” from the viewpoint of an observer whose job was to create a pictorial record of the times.
