Hollywood Star Charts

You ain't never seen Hollywood stars like this. UK art studio Dorothy mapped hundreds of films and movie stars into these two wonderful constellation maps, The Golden Age and The Modern Day Hollywood Star charts.

See if your favorite movies and actors are listed:

The [Golden Age] chart is based on the night sky over Los Angeles on October 6th 1927 - the release date of Al Jolson's 'The Jazz Singer', the first feature-length motion picture with synchronized dialogue which heralded a new era for cinema and the decline of the silent film.

The 62 films featured include those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance; Academy Award winners; and a few personal favourites. Films include King Kong, The Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca and Rebel without a Cause.

The [Modern Day] chart is based on the night sky over New York on June 16th 1960 - the date of the first showing of Hitchcock's 'Psycho' at the DeMille Theater. With its new approach to storytelling, characterisation and violence it is seen as a key movie in the start of the post-classical era of Hollywood.

The 108 films featured include those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance; Academy Award winners; and a few personal favourites. Films include Easy Rider, Bonnie and Clyde, The Exorcist, The Godfather, Chinatown, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction and Avatar.
