A biography of one of filmdom’s most distinguished art directors and production designers. The author, the Jeanne H. Hoffman Professor of Film Studies at the University of Oklahoma, tells in lively fashion the story of Henry Bumstead’s Academy Award-winning career spanning almost 70 years, including his work on such films as Vertigo, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Sting and Unforgiven. He also traces via Bumstead’s career the evolution of Hollywood art direction. The result is “entertaining and informative reading for film buffs and film scholars alike.”
