Slide 8: Catch Me If You Can - A World of Costume Changes
“I think why I really love period film is because I am a bit of a control freak. On a period film, no one questions that you should dress everyone. On Catch Me If You Can, everyone looked great because we controlled the dress, and we had great hair and make up. The challenge was that we shot 90% of the film in Los Angeles, but we had to make it look like it was taking place all over the world. So how do you make it look like they’re in Atlanta? In New York? In France? Since most of the action takes place in the sixties, we made just slight changes in the types of clothes to suggest the different places.”
