'My Fair Lady'

October 01, 1994

As my contribution as art director was overlooked in Emanuel Levy's article on the restoration of "My Fair Lady" (" 'My Fair Lady' Gets a Face Lift," Sept. 23), I feel it proper to point out that, even though Cecil Beaton is credited as production designer, I conceived, designed and executed all the sets and, in addition--working on a daily basis with George Cukor and director of photography Harry Stradling--functioned as the production designer.

Beaton designed the costumes, and together we gave the film a look worthy of restoration.
