Edith Head - The Paramount Years (2002)

*** (out of 4)

Nice tribute to Edith Head, the legendary costume designer who spent over forty-years at Paramount. Head biographer David Chierichetti tells pretty much her life story including how she started working at the studio, her favorite director to work with, what type of style she tried to bring to her work and he also goes into detail about why she created all of these amazing clothes but quite often dressed very bland herself. Fashion designer Bob Mackie is also interviewed about his thoughts on what Head did for the profession and Rosemary Clooney is also on hand talking about her working with Head on WHITE Christmas. At just 14-minutes there's really no way this could be a definitive look at the work of Head but for the most part I think it gives one a great idea of who she was and why she remains so famous decades after her death. We get clips from dozens of the film's she worked on as well as hearing that TO CATCH A THIEF was her favorite film. We also hear about the work on SUNSET BLVD. and ROMAN HOLIDAY, which we get to see Audrey Hepburn's screen test footage.
