Glamour of the Gods ($6.99) is a photographic survey of Hollywood portraiture from the industry’s golden age, the 1920s to the 1960s. The app includes 235 images, easily navigable with functions to view images by categories such as era, photographer and studio. Garbo, Dietrich, Cooper and Bogart are among the famous faces featured in the app and in many cases these are the career defining images of their era. The photographs are drawn from the extraordinary archive of the John Kobal Foundation in London. John Kobal was the last century’s pre-eminent authority on Hollywood photography and was the first collector and later author who systematically sought to understand photography’s important role in creating and marketing the great stars central to the Hollywood mystique. ❚
