Oscar Scandals: Edith Head Vs. Dorothy Jenkins

The first Color Costume Design Oscar was given to Dorothy Jenkins and Karinska for “Joan of Arc,” Victor Fleming’s Last feature, starring Ingrid Bergman in the title role.

Edith Head, nominated for Billy Wilder’s “The Emperor’s Waltz,” was furious and appalled that “Ingrid Bergman’s sackcloth and single suit of armor won over my Viennese finery.”

So much for collegiality from perennial nominee and winner, Edith Head.
