Howard Gutner first became interested in the Hollywood studio system and its traditional blend of business and art while attending the film studies program at Northwestern University. In 2001 he published Gowns by Adrian: The MGM Years 1928-1941. (Harry N. Abrams). This book was the first comprehensive review of Adrian’s career at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and was lauded by the New York Times as “a definitive look at Hollywood’s legendary designer.” Gutner lives in Brooklyn, New York.
"...a visually luxurious, information-rich look at MGM designer Cedric Gibbons. This trip back to Hollywood's Golden Age will be a treat for any movie buff, and perhaps also inspiration for tomorrow's filmmakers."
