Hide Profile

Jean Howard was a Hollywood actress, hostess, celebrity, and photographer. Her book, "Jean Howard's Hollywood: A Photo Memoir" (1989) records the time of the Palm Springs movie colony and the major studios. She was a Texan who got a start with Lorenz Ziegfeld. She was in a few films like "The Prize Fighter" and "The Lady", but she chose to marry Charles Feldman (agent-producer) instead. She developed her interest in photography in the 1940s, and her photographs are remarkable because they came from her insider view of the Hollywood scene. She made several trips overseas with Cole Porter and that led to her second photo book, "Travels with Cole Porter".
