The Hollywood costume designer Edith Head produced sketches for such famous costumes as worn in The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Birds, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Facts of Life, Vertigo, Funny Face, The Ten Commandments, To Catch A Thief with Grace Kelly in a magnificent shimmering golden ball gown, and Audrey Hepburn again in Sabrina among the famous films with even more famous actors and actresses and directors. Gloria Swanson in her three costumes created by Edith Head for Sunset Boulevard, jungle wear to evening wear in The Jungle Princess, Edith did it all and dressed a stellar cast of female stars, both in character and as themselves including Lucille Ball, Barbara Stanwyck, Mae West, Elizabeth Taylor and Doris Day among them. Her style acumen stretched from the exotic, historical costume she designed for Samson and Delilah and the Ten Commandments to the classic, timeless costumes she designed for Roman Holiday and To Catch a Thief. Our book is a sampling of her most famous works. 96 pages, colour and b/w photos and movie index.
