"The year is 1981. The production for Carl Reiner's Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is underway on the Universal lot. The studio's iconic costume designer--Edith Head--is running late to meet with us.

A 57 year career. Over 1,000 movies. And just as the audience started to sink into our seats to wait, a booming voice from the back of the theater makes everyone jump and suddenly Edith Head has made her way to the stage.This is how the brilliant Susan Claassen begins A Conversation with Edith Head...taking the audience on a journey to truly meet the master.
