The Movie Star News Archive holds one of the largest and most diverse collections of vintage Hollywood photographs and large format film studio negatives in the world, amassing more than 3 million images.

Movie Star News was founded in 1938 by Irving Klaw. Early in his first endeavor, a book store in lower Manhattan, Klaw often noticed that his customers would tear the pages featuring their favorite movie stars out of the magazines in the store. Shortly thereafter, he traded his love of literature for their love of celebrity photographs, and the idea of Movie Star News was born.
