“An illustrator and production designer who worked with Walt Disney to design a private apartment in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, Redmond broke ground in 1938 as the first woman to invade the “heretofore exclusively male field” of motion-picture production design (at David O. Selznick‘s studio). She also worked closely with Alfred Hitchcock on such features as Rear Window and The Man Who Knew Too Much. In 1964, she joined what is now known as Walt Disney Imagineering and helped envision elements of Disneyland. She also designed Fantasyland at Disney World, as well as portions of Main Street and the mosaic murals in the archway of Cinderella Castle.” —D23
