Edith Head - costume designer
Edith was born in California in 1897, and in 1924, she was hired as a costume sketch artist in the costume department at Paramount Pictures.
She remained at Paramount for 43 years before moving to Universal Pictures in 1967, possibly due to Hitchcock’s move to Universal in 1960.
During her 54 year career Edith was nominated for 35 Academy Awards.
