Description:

Hard Cover. Fine/No Jacket. Stated First Edition. Aqua boards with gray spine, stamped in pink. Light edgewear, especially to bottom of spine, but a good clean tight copy. Previous owner's name and address neatly stamped in black on inside front cover. This is a fascinating memoir by Head (1907-81), who was the Oscar-winning chief costumer for Paramount Pictures. It contains lots of vignettes about such stars as Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, and Sophia Loren. The supplement, "Prescriptions for Dressing," covers the appropriate attire for everything from amusement parks to dog shows (separate sections for handlers and spectators) to double weddings. (Brides "may or may not dress alike.") Illustrated with photos and drawings. Size: 6x9. Bookseller Inventory #
