He stayed in Paris after the war working for Lucille, Paul Poiret, and Molyneux, and also designing for theatre. He returned to America in 1921, and began to make his mark in the golden age of cinema until he grew tired of the restraints of black and white film and opened his own custom clothing business. His best known film work includes the Katharine Hepburn films Christopher Strong (1933) and Bringing Up Baby (1938). This is "the outrageous and amusing autobiography of a Nebraska farm boy who became one of Hollywood's leading designers. From the time (circa 1914) when he was interviewed and hired (surprisingly) by Lady Duff Gordon, dressmaker, Howard Greer had incredible adventures. Queen Marie of Rumania came to tea, Isadora Duncan danced for him in the moonlight of a Versailles garden (having failed to turn up at all at the supper party given in her honor), he designed audacious costumes for Pola Negri and Gloria Swanson and Greta Garbo and other sirens of the silent screen, and finally established his own successful business in Hollywood, where he is dressing the lovelies of today in clothes that help to set America's fashions," (front flap). VERY GOOD in Good Plus Dustjacket. N° de ref. de la librería 68630
