present the documentary tribute to Hollywood costume designer, Orry-Kelly,
Women He’s Undressed
at Gerringong Town Hall on
Saturday, 3rd October 2015 | 7.30pm for 8pm start
“Women He’s Undressed” is director Gillian Armstrong’s quest to unearth the legend of this multi Academy Award winning designer whose career encompassed 285 Hollywood films.
The self-proclaimed “boy from the bush,” born Jack, left the tiny beachside township of Kiama, for the bright lights of Hollywood via stints in Woolloomooloo’s houses of ill repute and then the speakeasies of New York, where he pursued an acting career that segued into set building before settling on costumes.
As his star continued to shine, Orry-Kelly regularly returned to Australia to visit his mother and would be met with adulation by the local press. “He really was ‘Our Orry, the famous costume designer,’ all through the ’30s and ’40s,” Armstrong says. “They interviewed him like you would Hugh Jackman now, ‘tell us what it’s like to work with Bette Davis.’ [SBS Movies 11th June 2015]
