Lloyd Henry Bumstead (March 17, 1915 - May 24, 2006) was an American cinematic art director and production designer. In a career that spanned over fifty-five years he won two Academy Awards: the first for To Kill a Mockingbird, and the second for The Sting. In addition, he was nominated for Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven. Bumstead was born in Ontario, California and, following his graduation from University of Southern California, joined Paramount Pictures in 1948. He learned his trade from Hans Dreier, with whom he worked on a number of films beginning with Saigon. Following Dreier's retirement in 1951 he worked with Hal Pereira, whom Paramount had brought in to replace Dreier. During these early years, Bumstead worked on numerous films, including My Friend Irma, My Friend Irma Goes West, and The Bridges at Toko-Ri. However, his big break came in 1956 when he worked with Pereira on Alfred Hitchcock's remake of The Man Who Knew Too Much. He went on to work on three further Hitchcock films: Vertigo, Topaz and Family Plot.show more
