Trivia

When the producers told Kaptur that they were going to put him in a classic Lincoln convertible, his wife suggested they find a GM product since Kaptur had spent time working in the GM styling division. When Kaptur saw the Lincoln, he ran his hand down the body line in appreciation and noted that Ford was putting out better designs than GM in those days. He had great joy driving that car around Palm Springs and hated giving it up at the end of shooting. See more »

Great Entertaining History Lesson
1 June 2014 | by bdlllcarrollSee all my reviews

We throughly enjoyed Quiet Elegance: The Architecture of Hugh M. Kaptur. For several years we've been visiting the area and wondered about the architecture of the older homes. It was also a great history lesson to learn the history of the architect as well as the homes and structures he designed and built. What is really amazing to us is that the 50 year old fire stations that he buit are still being used!

We especially enjoyed how the producers put Mr. Kaptur in a classic Lincoln to show us around! We not only got a tour of a few of his homes but we also got a tour of the Palm Springs area and learned quite a few tidbits that we never knew about Palm Springs.
