228 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. DECORATIVE ARTS. Playing both leading man and decorator to the most glamorous stars of Hollywood's Golden Age, William Haines had an unmistakably luxurious, modern style. From the silver screen to the White House, Class Act re-creates the life and career of a true American original with countless photographs, drawings, and personal mementos from Haines' archives. As an assistant to William Haines and Ted Graber from 1955 to 1985, Jean Hayden Mathison worked closely and traveled with them on their major decorating projects. Mathison now lives in West Hollywood where she is very active in community affairs and is involved with Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, an animal rescue organization. Peter Schifando maintains the line of succession from William Haines to Ted Graber, incorporating William Haines Inc. under his own name in 1989 and working with Ted Graber until his retirement. Over 300 illustrations. (Key Words: William Haines, Ted Graber, Jean Hayden Mathison, Interior Decorating, Peter Schifando).
