(Paramount, 1949) A signed Edith Head costume drawing dated September 26, 1949 for Paramount Pictures' 1951 film, A Place in the Sun starring Elizabeth Taylor. Edith Head was one of Hollywood's leading costume designers for both Paramount Pictures and Universal Pictures. Notably, Edith contributed to the costume design of Alfred Hitchcock's cinematic productions, in addition to television productions like Bewitched and Columbo, winning a total of eight Academy Awards in her lifetime.
