Stuart Scheinman just scored the catch of a lifetime.  His company, Entertainment Collectibles, bought a collection of nearly 3 million stills, posters, and negatives of Hollywood stars from the past 73 years.  From Betty Page pin-ups, to movie stills of Marlon Brando and Gary Cooper, its value is estimated to be in the millions.  We talk to Scheinman about some of the collection's prize pieces, his favorite pin-up, and what Hollywood magic he found gathering dust.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting.
