PHOTOS WITH HISTORICAL WORTH

London's slightly elderly A-list flocked to see Thursday night a unique exhibition of movie star images which lay hidden for decades.

Described by Christie's as 'The most extraordinary collection of its kind for the past fifty years,' the photos by the little known Frank Worth were a lost treasure trove until recently.

In Los Angeles in December 2000, following his death, the family of penniless 'Reluctant Genius' Frank Worth cleared through his dusty and muddled possessions. They came across a series of incredible photographs, many of legendary Hollywood stars.

His relatives knew he had once been friends with the likes of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and that he had earned his living as an often accredited freelance photographer but what they had discovered in his jumbled apartment was a treasure-trove photo collection more incredible than could ever have been anticipated.

In as many as 10,000 black and white and colour photos, the majority never before published, Frank Worth had recorded a personal and unique history of the last golden era of Hollywood at play, in love and in private.

The collection consists of some remarkable photos ranging from Elizabeth Taylor's first wedding to the original photo of Marilyn Monroe with her dress blowing up, taken late one evening on location in New York for the film 'The Seven Year Itch' (1955).

The photo of Marilyn includes director Billy Wilder and was taken seconds before the News Syndicate photographer's famous shot. Frank never released his photo until many years later, this was for a one-off publication in Variety as part of a featured tribute to Billy Wilder.

Even in photography circles, Frank Worth is barely known. He etched out a living as a freelance photographer in Hollywood during the nostalgic 1940s and '50s.

At this time most photographers were tightly controlled by a powerful studio system, however, as friend and lover to the stars Frank Worth escaped these restrictions and captured images that these studios would never normally have allowed.

Late in life it seems the curious Frank Worth would not allow anyone, even his family, near the photographs he regarded as his private album.

After his death however, the family felt he should be recognised for what he was, a brilliant photographer.

Like a true artist, Frank Worth now looks set to become posthumously a figure as iconic as those he photographed.

The exhibition 'Worth Exposing Hollywood' of Frank Worth's glamorous and unpublished Hollywood Photographs 1939-1964 is at the 20th Century Theatre, Notting Hill, London, W11.

Not really.
19. Various Mandela leaving

STORYLINE:

Former South African President Nelson Mandela visited the grave of the late Diana, Princess of Wales at her ancestral home in Althorp on Friday.

Mandela planted a tree in the grounds of the Northamptonshire estate and laid a wreath at the island burial site of the Princess of Wales.

A temporary bridge was erected so the elderly statesman could have access to the island. Her grave is normally off-limits to visitors who can visit a memorial statue on a bank opposite the island.

The 84 year old is visiting Britain to discuss a new charity project with Diana's brother Earl Spencer. He will outline proposals to combine the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund with his own charity, which helps young people suffering from Aids in South Africa.

Diana met the statesman for initial discussions about the idea five months before her death in August 1997.

Mandela said that Diana had made a great impression on him and that the news of her death had been devastating.

Spencer said that the visit of the former South African leader was a great honour for his family and the Princess. He declined to comment on the collapse of the Paul Burrell trial.

Burrell, Diana's former Butler, had been facing a possible prison sentence for allegedly stealing personal items from the Princess of Wales.

Prosecutors dropped the theft charges on Friday, explaining that Queen Elizabeth II had said he told her
shortly after the princess's death that he had taken some of Diana's papers for safekeeping.

Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris August 31 1997.

Women's History Month featuring Professor Shonni Enelow

March is Women's History Month. In this three-part mini-series, The Observer interviewed three Fordham College at Lincoln Center (FCLC) professors on the female figures who inspired them. This last and final week, we feature Assistant Professor English Shonni Enelow and her role model, British poet and Futurist Mina Loy.
