Oscar-wining production designer Henry Bumstead, who began his career in films
70 years ago, has died in Pasadena, CA at age 91. He designed the sets of more
than 100 films, including 13 starring Clint Eastwood. He was active to the end,
designing the sets of two yet-to-be-released Eastwood movies, Flag of Our
Fathers and Red Sun, Black Sand. He was awarded Oscars for the 1962
film To Kill a Mockingbird and 1973's The Sting. He received
Oscar nominations in 1958 for Vertigo and again in 1992 for
Unforgiven, another Eastwood film. At age 89 he designed the sets for
Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby, which won the Oscar for best picture.
