PHIL STERN: A

Here's Jackie Robinson during the filming of 1950's The Jackie Robinson Story, petting a black cat. Over here's John Wayne, looking like a woman (purse, slippers, short shorts, and all) on the set of 1967's War Wagon. Check out poor Bogart in his final years, sitting on a swing with his kid daughter and looking so, so sad. And here's Frank Sinatra, well, everywhere -- Stern shot the legend for 50 years. At 84, Stern mostly stays out of the celeb photography racket these days, and looking at these classic pics from Hollywood's heyday -- Brando, Monroe, and James Dean were other fave subjects -- you can't blame him. Movie stars got smaller.
