In 1947 and 1948, Van Johnson was MGM's top male box office draw. "On screen he was the Pied Piper; Elizabeth Taylor's lover, he was a war pilot with Spencer Tracy," writes his friend and decorator Carleton Varney in the introduction for Van Johnson's Hollywood: A Family Album. Along the way, his wife, Evie Wynn Johnson, an amateur shutterbug captured behind-the-scenes images of their friends some of Hollywood's most famous stars, such as Gary Cooper, Judy Garland, and Humphrey Bogart on the road, on the set, around the pool, and at their Hollywood home. She put together these casual and candid images in a family album that has never been published before. Their daughter, Schuyler adds her memories to this unique document of Hollywood's Golden Age.
