Norma Shearer by George Hurrell, 1930’s

One of George Hurrell’s first known subjects was the famed aviatrix, Pancho Barnes.  Barnes showed the photos to Ramon Novarro, and he hired Hurrell. Novarro then took his photos to Norma Shearer. She loved them and had Hurrell photograph her, after which she showed her photos to Irving Thalberg at MGM. Thalberg loved them as well, and the rest is history. From that point on, Shearer insisted on being photographed only by Hurrell.
