Containing Multitudes Since 2004
For someone so renowned for her costume design, that is one ridiculous hat with a rather sad frock. What spaghetti joint did she steal that tablecloth from?
She was quite the frump in a lot of pics I've seen.
Think you are getting her mixed up with someone else Fred. Along with Louella Parsons she was a Gossip Columnist with a nasty sadistic streak if displeased. She certainly knew how to dish the vitriol.
Probably thinking of Edith Head (see When Legends Gather #582). Hedda Hopper always wore over-the-top hats. She was also the mother of William Hopper (Paul Drake, Perry Mason's op). More tasty tidbits in the "Career" section here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedda_Hopper
She is someone Goldwyn would want to keep happy.
