At the 1959 Golden Globes, Dallinger caught CaryGrant and JanetLeigh dancing nose to nose. Surprisingly, the two never appeared in a film together, though Grant had just made Operation Petticoat with Leigh's husband, TonyCurtis.
Young Michael Douglas and Father Kirk
Kirk Douglas and his son Michael attended a March 1960 movie premiere when Michael was 16 years old.
Elvis Presley and Juliet Prowse
After a special screening of their forthcoming 1960 movie G.I. Blues, co-stars ElvisPresley and JulietProwse attended a studio-hosted buffet dinner to promote the film to exhibitors. Near the height of his fame, Presley looked bored by the exercise. Prowse, appearing in only her second major motion picture, worked hard to perk up his mood.
In 1970, 26-year-old Michael, a regular on the Hollywood circuit, attended the November premiere of Scrooge with BrendaVaccaro. The pair were at the start of a six-year relationship that began on the then-in-production film Summertree.
Faye Dunaway and Jack Nicholson

Young Michael Douglas and Father
In 1950, the then-6-year-old learned how to whittle from father Kirk.
Set of ‘Adventure’
On the set of 1945's Adventure, Dallinger photographed ClarkGable (left), perhaps his favorite subject, arm-wrestling castmate TomTully as director VictorFleming looked on as a judge. Dallinger was the rare photographer allowed into Gable's private home in Encino.
Shirley Temple Black
Dallinger wanted to include this rare unpublished 1950 photograph of 22-year-old ShirleyTempleBlack (who died Feb. 10 at age 85) dancing with her future husband, 31-year-old CharlesBlack, in a never-completed second book. The former child star and future U.S. ambassador had met the San Francisco businessman in Hawaii in January 1950, a few weeks after the end of her first marriage (to JohnAgar, whom she had married in 1945 at age 17). Black proposed 12 days later, and the two married in December 1950.
After his 1971 retirement, Dallinger published a collection of his photos (Unforgettable Hollywood, 1982). A planned second volume would have included this 1957 snapshot of 23-year-old ShirleyMacLaine at the annual SHARE costume party fundraiser for what would become Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital in 1961.
Jack Warner and Julie Andrews
At the 1965 Globes, JackWarner planted a kiss on a surprised JulieAndrews after she won best actress for MaryPoppins; this was only a year after he surprised Hollywood by not offering her the Eliza Doolittle role in My Fair Lady.
Leslie Uggams and Sidney Poitier
LeslieUggams laughed with SidneyPoitier after making her L.A.-area singing debut with a 1964 performance at the famed Cocoanut Grove nightclub. Poitier was less than a year removed from becoming the first black man to win a best actor Oscar, for his performance in Lilies of the Field.
