This vintage 1958 Natalie Wood signed publicity photo shows the “West Side Story” star wearing a one-piece bathing suit. The photo has been autographed in blue Sharpie by Wood and includes a United Artists studio snipe on the reverse.

During this transitional period of her lifelong movie career, Natalie Wood appeared opposite Frank Sinatra in “Kings Go Forth” (1958). Around this time, she began refusing roles given to her by the studio and was subsequently suspended by Warner Brothers until 1959.

A “cheesecake photo” was this cool style of photography that people got into around the mid-20th century. They’re basically these super glamorous and alluring shots of women. Think tastefully seductive or classic pin-up style – you know, the kind of pictures that catch your eye and make you go, “Wow!”

Vintage Hollywood Cheesecake Photos

A “cheesecake photo” refers to a style of photography that became popular in the mid-20th century, typically featuring beautiful girls in a tastefully seductive or pin-up style. Certain vintage Hollywood photos in this style can be very collectible today.

In the context of the 1950’s Hollywood scene, cheesecake photos played a role in promoting the image of actresses as glamorous and desirable. These images were often created by the studio photographers to be used in publicity materials, magazines, and promotional campaigns.

The term “cheesecake” itself is believed to have originated from the idea that such images were as tempting and delightful as a slice of cheesecake.
