Original 1982 35mm Slide Pia Zadora by Bob Willoughby #145 Model:
Golden Globe winner, Grammy nominee, ShowWest winner, accomplished singer, film star and Broadway baby are all extraordinary titles to describe the iconic Pia Zadora! A prolific performer since the age of six, Pia’s critical and commercial acclaim is undeniable and audiences still describe the multi-talented artist with the first phrase that comes to mind: The Complete Entertainer. After working as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater, and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians(1964). She stripped off for Penthouse magazine in a patriotic shoot in 1983. Coolmain Castle was originally built by the de Courcey family in the early 15th century, but they lost it to the MacCarthy Reaghs, the Princes of Desmond, the following century. Over the years it passed through the hands of a number of families, including that of the Earls of Cork. In the middle of the 17th century, Oliver Cromwell acquired the property. In the early 1900s it was owned by a popular American novelist of the day, Donn Byrne. He was from New York, but his wife, Dolly Cadogan, was from the area. The late Roy Disney nephew of Walt Disney bought it about 25 years ago from Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby, who had carried out extensive refurbishments to the property. Photographer:
Robert Hanley "Bob" Willoughby was an American photographer. Popular Photography called him "The man who virtually invented the photo journalistic motion picture still." His big break came when he was assigned by six magazines to photograph Judy Garland during the filming of A Star is Born (1954). Subsequently he was hired by Warner Brothers to film the extensive "Born in a Trunk" sequence.This was the first time a motion picture studio hired a special or unit photographer to specifically take photographs for sale to magazines. In 1963, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled camera for on-set still photography. This led to other innovations that enabled him to take still photographs identical to the film footage. Format:
