From famed director Gillian Armstrong (My Brilliant Career) comes the story of legendary Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly, who won Academy Awards for An American in Paris, Les Girls, and Some Like it Hot. During Hollywood’s golden age, he was costume designer on an astonishing 282 motion pictures, designing for stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Rosalind Russell, and many more. Part documentary with interviews with Hollywood icons like Jane Fonda and Angela Lansbury, and part fictional re-enactment of Orry-Kelly’s dream-filled life as a child in Australia and his later romantic life as a gay man in Hollywood, including his relationship with Cary Grant, Women He’s Undressed shines a light on this brilliant, all-but-forgotten artist. 

Director’s Statement: Gillian Armstrong 

All the best characters rock the boat! I was approached with a documentary proposal, “Gowns by Orry-Kelly,” in June 2012. I was hooked. Orry-Kelly’s story was an immediately inspiring subject for a documentary. And yes, I had never heard of him either. There is something completely compelling about this very talented, very outlandish, gay Australian rascal’s journey in Hollywood. Perhaps I like them talented and troubled. I believed it could make a wonderfully unique movie — funny, rich, colorful, entertaining, and ultimately quite moving.
