Take my home from drab to Hollywood glam

I'm looking for a source for black and white photos of old black Hollywood film stars a la Nina Mae McKinney, Dorothy Dandrige, et. al.

Google and Ebay turned up nothing ... unless I'm not searching the right terms.

Hoping the green can help me turn my cookie-cutter apartment into a swank old Hollywood pad.

Best answer: Have you looked through the Google Life archives? They have some great ones of Dorothy Dandridge.

Response by poster: Ugh,
The Google Life archives had some good stuff but more importantly, it lead me to allposters.com. I'd never seen it. They have some awesome, awesome prints. Thanks!

2nd Doctor Macro, if you have access to a good printer. The site has a number of wonderful high-res scans.

For example, Dorothy Dandridge (more).

Browse through their Galleries.
