Stephen Boyd and Old Hollywood Glamour

Stephen Boyd had the style and the image of old Hollywood Glamour. Stephen himself would often say that the Hollywood (during his era) had already lost its mystery.

“There was a time when celebrities were really idols- remote gods and goddesses whom people looked up to and adored. I think everybody needs an idol, but once that idol is reduced to average size and every intimate detail of his life made an open book, then he loses that pedestal which separates him from those who desire to gaze up at him….Ideally, it would be wonderful if, like the fables cities of old, Hollywood could be enclosed behind high walls and no one except those who work there be permitted to enter. Then the mystery would return. Then people once again would wonder and marvel at the fabulous aura emanating from behind those walls. It would once more be a magical kingdom. I think that’s what people really want in their stars–the marvelous magic of mystery.” (Photoplay, 1966)

Here’s a few pics of Stephen out on the town which I think capture some of that Old Style Glamour!
