Did You Know?


Producer A.C. Lyles stated in later years that Paramount costume designer Edith Head would pull clothing from Paramount wardrobe stock for his low-budget films off the record as a favor to him since he could not afford her salary on his tiny budgets. In the case of Red Tomahawk, Head advised A.C. Lyles that she would have her seamstresses in the wardrobe department who were not busy at the time make up new period clothing for Betty Hutton since she already had Hutton's measurements from her heyday in Paramount films from the 1940s and early 1950s. These costumes were to keep the seamstresses busy during a lull in productions at Paramount and replace old wardrobe stock. In this fashion, A.C. Lyles would not be financially responsible for the new clothing items being made off the record for Betty Hutton who was to make her return to the screen with this western. See more »
