Mr. John’s most famous work was his millinery for Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind…A famous anecdote about Mr. John goes that a woman came into his shop in urgent need of a hat. He built one up right on her head, but she balked when he named his price. He then disassembled the pieces and handed them to her. “That’s $3.59,” he said, “You make it.”
