Respected photographer, artist and set designer, Cecil Beaton. was best known for his Academy Award-winning work, designing for such award-winning films such as Gigi (1958) and My Fair Lady (1964). The film features archive footage and interviews with various models, artists and filmmakers who worked closely with Beaton during his illustrious career.

A well made documentary on the life of Cecil Beaton. A man with a great imagination despite being a victim of his time.

Certainly not an easily likeable person: but isn't that true for all artistic exceptional intellectual or creative people?

Worthy of watching to see his mark on art in the first half of the 20th Century.
