George Hurrell

George Hurrell and Robert Montgomery, Clark Gable, Adolphe Menjou and Nils Asther.

One thing I notice when I look at many George Hurrell photos, and indeed many old black and white movies, is that they have this shiny, silvery quality that I just don't see in today's movies when they're made in black and white. Maybe it had something to do with the lighting.

Yes exactly, like an almost glowing quality that just isnt seen much anymore. For cinemaphotographers like Lee Garmes and Karl Struss I've heard that look described as shimmering. Lighting was probably the key, though I know next to nothing about photography from that era, only that I like it!
