"Dear Bummy, You take the BS out of filmmaking!" Clint Eastwood's comment on Henry Bumstead's receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998 from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Art Directors "Making a movie with Bummy was always a pleasure because it was like going to work with a good friend who also had a fine, artistic eye, who shared your vision, and who knew infinitely more about the practical nuts-and-bolts business of putting a story on camera than you did... Everything he designed served the movie. He knew how to visually bring it to life." Robert Mulligan " ... Henry Bumstead and the WOrld of Hollywood Art Direction is essential reading for anyone intested in this crucial aspect of filmmaking."--FILM INTERNATIONAL Issue 18 2005:6
