    • Black and White, Shadows, Hard Light, Beautiful People, Beautiful Clothes, Dramatic Poses. Glamor Personified in a Film Star. Making the star shine as bright as possible back in the when film was king and was not even possible for it to capture anything red. “Orthochromatic” film back in the day was not sensitive to red, which is why safe lights in the darkroom were red. This caused anything red on the model to go darker that it would appear to the eye. Red lipstick and nails, were okay, a ruddy complexion on a female star was not good. Hence the heavy use of pancake makeup at times. On male stars it could work.
