A remarkable set of 430 candid photographs of Hollywood royalty have been unearthed after 50 years.<br />
<br />
Included in the collection of unpublished pictures are snaps of silver screen icons Paul Newman, Charlie Chaplin, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Dean Martin.<br />
<br />
Paul Newman is captured looking over his shoulder at the wheel of his car and Charlie Chaplin is pictured without his trademark moustache. <br />
<br />
Audrey Hepburn has posed with her then husband actor Mel Ferrer while Bette Davis can be seen puffing on a cigarette.<br />
<br />
The snaps were taken by obsessive amateur photographer Dwight 'Dodo' Romero from 1954 to 1967 who would hang around at Hollywood parking lots and other hang-outs to catch a glimpse of the stars.<br />
<br />
The photos, which more recently belonged to a book dealership in York, have emerged for auction and are tipped to sell for £800.
