Adrian Adolph Greenburg. Born March 3, 1903 in Naugatuck, CT. Studied costume and set design in New York and Paris. Discovered in Paris by Irving Berlin, he returned to the U.S. in the fall of 1922. He designed costumes for the 1923, 1924 and 1925 "Music Box Revue" and for others. While in New York he designed film costumes for Mae Murray and Rudolph Valentino. He was head of wardrobe for the DeMille studio from 1926 to 1928 and followed the director to M.G.M. in 1928 where Adrian designed for all of the studio's leading ladies until his departure in 1941, following the poor reception to the "Americanization" of Greta Garbo in "Two Faced Woman." He established a dress salon in Beverly Hills and New York which he operated until a heart attack in 1952 led to their closure. His last film was the 1952 M.G.M. remake of "Roberta" titled "Lovely to Look at". He continued to be active in designing menswear and exhibiting his African paintings. He returned to theatre in 1958, designing for the Paul Muni production of "Grand Hotel" and "Camelot" in 1959. He died during the preparation of "Camelot." He was survived by his wife of 20 years, actress Janet Gaynor and a son, Robin.
