Polaroid 440 "Hollywood Dog" Automatic Land Camera
It's the Polaroid 440 Automatic Land Camera. Around these parts, we call the 440 "The Hollywood Dog"! The story goes that FPP founder Michael Raso received a mystery package in early 2011 that contained a Polaroid 440 camera. No note, no explanation, but the camera did have a "Hollywood Dog" sticker on it featuring a slinky pooch wearing a red baret! Who is The Hollywood Dog????
So, put on your baret, grab your 440 and walk the dog!...The Hollywood Dog. Each camera is branded with a replica of the original Hollywood Dog sticker!
