Pop Quiz – Happy Birthday to Edith.

Readers, I really have not had the time to regularly write my blog due due to real life vintage shows. However, I do have time to celebrate the 116th birthday of Edith Head, a designer who created some of the most amazing film costumes ever.

When I was young and would watch films with my mother (which was nearly every day) she would always pay close attention to the opening credits and then turn to me and say “Just remember, If you see Edith Head as the costume designer it will always be a good movie…”  This was the kind of priceless knowledge passed down in my family.

And frankly, I still check every time.  And it is always true.

So for today’s quiz… I am going to give you four sketches from Edith.  Tell me the actor and the film that each sketch is for!  Bonus if you know the scene from the movie.

Ready?  Go!
