Found in a pillowcase, the fabulous long-lost memoirs of a legendary Hollywood designer – and a genuine Australian original. Orry-Kelly created magic on screen, from Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon to Some Like It Hot. He won three Oscars for costume design. He dressed all the biggest stars, from Bette Davis to Marilyn Monroe. He was an Australian. Yet few know who Orry-Kelly really was - until now.

I really got into this book! I'm into Classic Movies & knew the name Orry-Kellly from his many credits on Turner Classic Movies. I've always been a fashion follower--with a Bachelor's degree in it. This book covers both of these interests & a lot more!
Lots of humor, Art, History, sprinkled with an Aussie geography lesson. A little slow at the start, but worth getting through to the heart of it.
