    Prod'n designer Henry Bumstead dies, 91
    The Hollywood Reporter
    By AP

    Henry Bumstead, an Academy Award-winning production designer who created sets for such classic films as "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Vertigo" in a career spanning 70 years, has died. He was 91.

    Bumstead, who had prostate cancer, died Wednesday in Pasadena, his stepdaughter Sue-Ellen Gittings told the Associated Press.

    The designer, affectionately known as "Bummy," worked on more than 100 films, including 13 for Clint Eastwood. He recently concluded work on two still-unreleased Eastwood movies: "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Red Sun, Black Sand."

    "Bummy was one of a kind," Eastwood said in a statement. "He seamlessly bridged the gap between what I saw on the page and what I saw through the camera lens. He is a legend in his field and a cherished friend. We will all miss him terribly."

    Bumstead received Oscars for re-creating 1930s rural Alabama in the 1962 adaptation of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and for his sets of Depression-era Chicago in the 1973 heist comedy "The Sting."

    He also was nominated for his work on Eastwood's 1992 Western "Unforgiven" and the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Vertigo" and received the Art Directors Guild's lifetime achievement award in 1998.

    Bumstead worked on four Hitchcock films, beginning with the 1956 thriller "The Man Who Knew Too Much." The others were 1969's "Topaz" and the director's final movie, 1976's "Family Plot."
