Images shown are unretouched low resolution jpeg scans of negatives/photographs, proper scans would result in much better quality. Important: Movie Star News used both originals and "copy negatives" in print production (one of the reasons being that the original did not survive and a copyneg had to be made from print). Any negative we offer is original , meaning it is the actual negative that was in the camera during modelling session in the studio. Any photograph we offer is from original negative (and comes from Movie Star News stock). Original vs Copyneg: Unlimited number of copynegs can be made from original negative/print.Only one original negative can exist. In addition to loosing value as the original work of the photographer, Irving Klaw copynegs are usually of significantly lower quality due to the technology used. Quick tip: Irving Klaw studio inventory numbers (typically model's name or initials followed by 1-3 digit number) were written on the negative by hand using ink pen. If the number appears to be part of the image - you are dealing with a copy negative.
The film itself, higher contrast, loss of detail throughout entire image - can also be signs of possible copyneg but are less apparent to someone without darkroom experience.
