Oscar-winning set designer HENRY BUMSTEAD, who collaborated with Clint Eastwood on 13 movies, has died at the age of 91. Hollywood veteran Bumstead, who worked on over 100 films, won Academy Awards for production design on To Kill a Mockingbird and The Sting. In a career that spanned nearly 70 years, he was also an Oscar nominee for Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Eastwood's Unforgiven. Bumstead was diagnosed with prostate cancer during the filming of Eastwood's 2004 Oscar winner Million Dollar Baby. The disease was reportedly the cause of his death. Eastwood told The Los Angeles Times, "(He was) one of a kind. "He seamlessly bridged the gap between what I saw on the page and what I saw through the camera lens. He is a legend in his field and a cherished friend. We will all miss him terribly."
