Now and then we regret moving some of our books along to new owners. One such regret: Edith Head’s Hollywood – a 1983 book that more than satisfied our yearnings for a closer look at Mid-Century Hollywood films, vintage clothing, and, of course, movie greats.
Honestly, we admit we are star-struck – awed by the still-magnetic power of actors like Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis and Marlene Dietrich – and also especially taken by what they wore in their classic films. So the movie stills and sketches by Edith Head, the end-all, be-all of movie fashion design, make this book a treasure for film-lovers, fashion-forward vintage clothing collectors and Hollywood obsessives. Singly – or collectively, as we like to think of ourselves.
