Photo shoot of the future star-21-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer

This series of photos of a young Michelle Pfeiffer was taken by photographer Jim Britt in 1979, when Michelle Pfeiffer was just beginning to think about acting fame. Bright roles, the attention of critics, the love of the public and nominations for the "Oscar" and "Golden Globe" – all this is still to come.

She began with cameo roles in not-so-successful TV series. The first appearance on the big screen was for her role in the film "Hollywood Knights" (1980), and she received her first major role two years later, in the musical "Grease‑2". And a year later, she was waiting for a real success-a role in the famous film "Scarface", which brought her to the first cohort of Hollywood.
