Oscar Trivia #5

Former French teacher Edith Head fudged her resume to get a foot in the door at Paramount's costume department in 1927. She had no experience at all.
She went on to receive an astonishing thirty-five Academy Award Nominations for Best Costume Design, winning eight.
The films featuring her Oscar-winning designs are The Heiress, All About Eve, Samson and Delilah, A Place in the Sun, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, The Facts of Life, and The Sting.
