Merle Oberon, 1939

Merle Oberon photographed by Bob Coburn, Wuthering Heights

I photographed Merle Oberon more than anybody except maybe Rita Hayworth. Merle was the type of person that you never got tired of shooting. She was cooperation from the time she walked in the gallery to the time she walked off. She worked hard. She grasped everything I said to her. A lot of them never paid attention. You had to go over and move their hand, they had no grace, no body.

--- Bob Coburn to John Kobal, 1975
