    He was a foppish social climber.
    Early in his career, he sent pseudonymous letters to fashion magazines recommending his work.
    He clashed with director George Cukor during the filming of 'My Fair Lady,' especially after he disrupted a day's shooting schedule to take publicity pictures of Audrey Hepburn.
