William Haines Pop Art
Stylish pop art print of movie heart-throb William Haines, part of the Hollywood Guys collection by Art & Hue.

Refusing the studio’s demands to enter a sham marriage, Billy Haines left acting to become an interior designer and became known as the King of Hollywood Regency having invented the luxurious look.

Tab Hunter, Rock Hudson, George Nader, Montgomery Clift, Ramon Novarro and William Haines were the legendary leading men of their day, making cinemagoers swoon and capturing the hearts of fans.

With over 270 film credits between them, these matinée idols left an indelible legacy of gay icons who headlined major movies, succeeding despite snooping gossip columnists & persecuting politicians.

We can look back at their careers and, with the benefit of hindsight, appreciate the trail they blazed as stars within the confines of the times, forever proving that gay icons can successfully headline films.

Rather than conceding to the studio’s demands to marry an actress for the sake of appearances, Haines retired from acting and, along with his partner James “Jimmie” Shields, established himself as a successful interior designer.

Haines was commissioned by many of his contemporaries, such as Joan Crawford, Jack L. Warner, Carole Lombard & George Cukor, to create homes in the signature style he invented of Hollywood Regency.

Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
