It is interesting that while Norma's favorite photographer was Hurrell. He was the only one who ended up being her official photographer. While, Garbo--who didn't get along well with Hurrell for their only session--would only be photographed by C. S. Bull. You can tell how much power these women had that they were able to demand whatever photographer they wanted.

In addition, I have recently started a blog dedicated to all the great old Hollywood style photographers including Hurrell among others. Please feel free to take a look:
