Very Interesting Documentary...A Pleasant Surprise
I was simply channel surfing the other evening and came across this documentary, having missed only the first five minutes or so. As the daughter of a FANTASTIC European dressmaker and more or less designer, and having grown up with many custom-made dresses and suits, as well as a lifelong lover of film, I found this documentary to be a true treat. It's wonderful to see someone so completely in love with his work, and benefiting from fulfilling his passion by being vibrant at a ripe "young" age of 90. His detailed measurements of the stars and their irregularities ("right arm, 18 inches; left arm, 17.5 inches")brings back so many beautiful memories of my mother fitting me and a slew of her many loyal customers for decades, with our big, beautiful kitty Dexter (named after Cary Grant's "C.K. Dexter Haven", of The Philadelphia Story) taking comfort faithfully alongside in a big trunk of many colored and textured fabrics. This film offered a very interesting, intimate look into a charmed life, indeed.
