Endless Summer: Hollywood Icons at the Beach (1965)

It’s a quick glimpse into a bygone era, a more innocent era, before TMZ, Perez Hilton and The Superficial made being a celebrity a more difficult proposition. The date is August 1965. The place is Malibu. And the people? Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood — Paul Newman, Natalie Wood, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, and Rock Hudson — enjoying some simple, intimate moments at the beach. The video above comes from a set of films originally belonging to Roddy McDowall, all now appearing on YouTube for the first time. Other clips in the collection feature:
