^ Thanks- one of THE all time great movies! I saw it in an art house in wide screen once, and it was even better!
Cary's suits at that point in his career were made by Quintino in Beverly Hills, and if you really look closely, Martin Landau wears the exact same suit in several scenes; Hitchcock secretly had Cary's tailor make up identical suits for him- as you may know there was a strong gay undercurrent in the film, particularly between Landau and James Mason where they all imitated and commented on their admiration of one another, which was very subtle due to the culture of the mid 1950s...
Yes, it's certainly one of my favorites. I'd really like to catch it in a revival theater. The film is bursting with style and opulence.
Your comment regarding those iconic suits led me to a very informative Fashion in Film blog. Apparently there's some uncertainty about whether Quintino or Kilgour (UK) took the lead: http://onthisdayinfashion.com/?p=2872
IMDb lists Harry Kress under Costume and Wardrobe Department, but it sounds like his involvement was limited.
Cary's early days in film were Anderson and Shepard, and he often got suits from Kilgour, but in the 50s he was almost exclusively going to Quintino as he lived right in Beverly Hills and he was very friendly with them, they were even mentioned in the credits for "Indescreet"...BTW, being famously careful with his money, he made sure his suits were given to him as part of his picture deals, as was the magnificent Rolls Royce he and Ingrid Bergman used in "Indiscreet"...
I watched Muriel's Wedding (1994) and Emma (1996) yesterday and today respectively. And I enjoyed both films immensely. I found both of them to be aesthetically pleasing and filmed really well. Plus the clothes were wonderful (although Muriel's Wedding was very 80's/early 90's but it's fun for nostalgia).
