New York, NY: Clarkson N. Potter, 2002. First Edition. Softcover. Inscribed & signed to Barbara & Irving Nusbaum by Sandy Schreier. "When I was a little girl, I dreamt about two things: being a bride and being a movie star," writes Sandy Schreier in the introduction to Hollywood Gets Married. Like many of us, Schreier grew up admiring the stars of her era, and she delighted in their weddings, both on-screen and off. Now, in a gorgeous and comprehensive pictorial history, she chronicles the glamour and the glitz of Hollywood nuptials. From Grace Kelly and Prince Ranier to Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett, from the original Father of the Bride to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Hollywood Gets Married takes us on a sentimental and humorous journey through the most memorable unions of the twentieth century." (from front flap) A lavish survey of on-screen & real-life weddings entered into by the glamorous stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood films. Author Sandy Schreier, a Detroit-born Michigan resident & alumnus of the University of Michigan here in Ann Arbor, is an acclaimed fashion historian who has famously amassed the world's largest & most important private collection of couture clothing, much of it lent for exhibits at the most prestigious American & European museums.

With an insightfully captioned cornucopia of movie stills & vintage photographs in color & black-&-white. On the front endpaper/ shorter title page, Schreier has hand-written & signed in bold black ink: "For Barbara & Irv-/ Love you both!/ Lots of years,/ please!/ (signed) Sandy." "Barbara & Irv" are Barbara (1935-2023) & Irving (1933-2018) Nusbaum- world travelers, connoisseurs, eminent collectors of art & books, & the dearly beloved late parents of this grieving writer. As this most affectionate inscription demonstrates, they were contemporaries & good friends with the illustrious author.
