Matt Crawford speaks with veteran costume designer and author Marjorie McCown about her new novel Star struck: A Hollywood Mystery. Costumer designer Joey Jessop is working on a 1930's Hollywood period piece with two of its biggest stars. After she witnesses a hit-and-run near the set, she realizes the car may belong to the movies female lead, Gillian Best. What follows is a great whodunit with the flare and style of Hollywood that lifts the veil on an unappreciated part of movie making. McCown and I also discuss her decades long work as a costume designer to some of the biggest stars and what her craft entails.
