Irene at work
This is a photo of Irene leaving the former studio in Culver City.
“Once the designer for Los Angeles’ swank Bullock’s-Wilshire store, Irene, who is married to Hollywood Writer Eliot Gibbons (brother of MGM’s art director, Cedric Gibbons) went to M-G-M in 1942, where she heads a staff of more than 200. She will now cut down her M-G-M designing to eight or ten major pictures a year, delegate the rest to her assistants. MGM, anticipating profitable publicity tie-ins from the department stores, is entirely happy about the setup.”
