Although the book is mainly about Travilla's working relationship with Marilyn, there are also mentions of other stars like Loretta Young and Errol Flynn. It would have been great to see photos of Travilla's designs for them (especially the Oscar winning ones for Flynn's "Adventures of Don Juan"). Instead, we are given five pages of an interview of author Andrew Hansford, which sadly puts this book on the level of a self-serving fan, especially in light of its sloppy editing. I doubt that many readers bought the book to learn about Hansford, but they probably would have rather had 5 more pages about Travilla and/or Marilyn. The best part of the book is when it gets into the individual outfits that Travilla designed for Marilyn. They are thoroughly explained as to their construction and the reader learns that Travilla was a master of architecture and showing off the female form to its best advantage.Read more ›
