Format: Paperback
Its amazing how many designers of movie costumes were not particularly well known. Excellent book for those interested in the background of film costume and students of design history. Many amazing photographs accompany these synopsis and hollywood buffs will appreciate the film and academy award listings. One of the more worthwhile books still in print.

OK. So, you already know who designed the costumes for My Fair Lady. But, you find yourself watching AMC one day and they're playing "The Manchurian Candidate" and halfway through the movie you remember that you forgot to look at the costuming credits. Well, you open the index to this nifty little reference book and find out that Moss Mabry not only designed the costumes for this movie but quite a few more. That he co-designed with Marjorie Best for Giant to win an Academy Award nomination, and so on...
There are some nifty pictures that accent this reference guide. So, in addition to the listings, you get photos of older and newer stars (I could swear that the photo of Norma Shearer from "The Waning Sex" is a Hurrell), and reproductions of designer illustrations.
I think I'll keep this one close to the VCR.

a wonderful reference book easy to jump off into either studio or different designers depending on what you are interested in and why.
Think this is a great first reference book on which to build a library of costume design books around depending on what you are interested in.

This is a very reasonably priced, well-illustrated introduction to the work of the major Costume Designers for mainstream twentieth-century American films.
