IN ASSOCIATION WITH
Film stills, most commonly made by uncredited staff photographers, were produced by the studios’ publicity departments to promote particular films in the popular press. Unlike frame enlargements, which are made from a single frame of a film, these publicity stills usually differ from the images that appear on the big screen. Working on the sound stages and sets before and after actual filmings, or between takes, the photographers often arranged their own lighting, repositioned characters and props, and shot scenes from viewpoints different from those used by the cinematographers.*
