Women He's Undressed | Ratings & Reviews

"Worth it for the bit when Jane Fonda declares her desire to motorboat Marilyn Monroe’s bedazzled bosom alone, director Gillian Armstrong’s homage to the life of her compatriot Orry-Kelly (real name Orry George Kelly) is full of juicy surprises and exquisite style. Kelly went from small town Australia to Hollywood via New York, becoming one of the most successful costume designers of cinema’s Golden Age. Using Kelly’s recently uncovered memoir as a source, there’s a hint of gossip mag-style glee to Women He’s Undressed – particularly the bits about Kelly’s former boyfriend, one Archie Leach who later became better known as Cary Grant."

"Spritzy and theatrical documentary pops the cork on the Australian costume designer behind Some Like it Hot and Casablanca."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Allows Armstrong to hold back revealing her subject in all his glory until the very end."


"Armstrong has unearthed a fascinating story with her profile of Orry-Kelly (Orry George Kelly), costume designer to the stars during Hollywood's golden age."


"A prosaic telling but catnip nonetheless."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It's a fitting tribute to a true cinematic trailblazer, and an often under-appreciated artform."


"Terrifically entertaining and revealing snapshots of how The Hollywood System worked and how designers and their leading ladies actually collaborated on what was created and worn."
