With hundreds of rare photographs, set sketches, and original renderings showcasing films of every era and genre--many shown here for the very first time--author Cathy Whitlock offers movie fans a backstage pass to 100 years of Hollywood's most memorable film sets. In the vein of Deborah Landis's Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design, Whitlock's Designs on Film delivers a fascinating tour through Hollywood's back lots, including the stories of how numerous movies came to their final on-screen looks--whether by collaboration, conflict, or divine chance. Movie enthusiasts, set designers, and fans of classic and modern Hollywood will thrill for this look behind the scenes of Tinsel Town's greatest triumphs.
