"I bring personal and sentimental baggage to this work," LeRoy Neiman explains. "As a guest, I have felt at home in the bungalows of The Beverly Hills Hotel for many years. As a stargazer, I have always enjoyed the unique showcase that is the Polo Lounge. Stars here have left a special imprint on my memory, so there was something magical for me in creating this sampling of Hollywood's elite." And what a sampling it is! LeRoy Neiman has drawn together a remarkable group of personalities who have dominated the Hollywood scene from both in front and behind the cameras. Near Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable sits a sly W.C. Fields, and, yes, he is holding his menu upside down. Famed gossip columnist Hedda Hopper is perched within earshot of Bogie and Bacall, who seem to be keeping an eye on Katherine Hepburn and John Huston. Elizabeth Taylor, regal and bejeweled, enjoys a quiet cup of coffee. Frank and Barbara Sinatra are making their entrance, perhaps to join Frank's fellow "Rat Pack" buddies Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., who have already arrived. Star-makers Darryl F. Zanuck and Howard Hughes are here, as are Johnny Carson and Joan collins from the world of television. Film greats Gary Cooper, Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo all help lend a magical air to this glittering assemblage. It is no wonder that LeRoy Neiman feels such a special warmth toward this magnificent work.
