GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD TAROT REVIEW
The Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot is inspired by characters and scenes from films of the 1920s and 1960s. The deck includes an array of 82 cards (there’s an additional “Veto” card for each suit) The majority of the cards have been changed to reflect the theme. It’s a simple, functional and colorful deck that’s rooted in popular culture that is well-known. Self-published through The Game Crafter.
As a bizarre and innovative deck, it is not uncommon to see RWS names are altered in this deck. The High Priestess is now The Psychic, the Empress transforms into The Matriarch. Aces turn into Births, Queens turn into Glory. The magical world of Hollywood shines through when King Kong falls from The Tower, Anne Bancroft in The Graduate changes into The Devil, The Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz finally gets an actual heart (though one that has swords cut into It) at The Three of Cups, and who wouldn’t want to see Gene Kelly from Singin’ in the rain at The Eight of Wands? Alfred Hitchcock loved making cameo appearances in his films together with Lorelei’s cats who also appeared on the cards The Master of Suspense features in this card in one of the Power of Swords (with the Bates house from Psycho as the backdrop).
GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD TAROT CARD DETAILS
The deck is 82 cards that Madame. Douglas having added four cards to the suits, which she added more later. They are like prosaically Pentacles Swords, Cups and Wands and include Court characters being referred to as Magic, Focus, Glory and Power in place of Page Knight, Queen and King. Elizabeth Taylor in the role of Kate in Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew,” creates a charming Glory of Pentacles, with floral arrangements, lace, and a platter of apples, as well as the stunning portrait of Mrs. Douglas of Taylor in costume from the period. Rudolph Valentino in sheik costume as the Power of Cups is tailor-made to play the card. The Ace in each suit is referred to as The Birth of that suit (for the most terrifying moment take a look at The Birth of Swords.) Each pip card is illustrated by an iconic Hollywood moment, therefore each one is unique and finally able to put in some personal opinions I am awestruck by the scenes the actress. Douglas has chosen.
