Edward S. "Ted" Haworth (September 26, 1917 – February 18, 1993) was an American production designer and art director. Active from 1950 to 1992, he was the production designer or art director on more than 50 feature films. He won an Academy Award for Best Art Direction for Sayonara (1957) and was nominated for the same award for five other films: Marty (1955), Some Like It Hot (1959), Pepe (1960), The Longest Day (1962), and 'What a Way to Go! (1964).

Early years

Haworth was born in Cleveland in 1917 and grew up in the suburb of Willoughby, Ohio.[1] His father, William, was a playwright and theatrical producer.[2] He attended the University of Southern California.[1]

Art direction

Haworth began working in the motion picture business as an illustrator, set designer, and assistant art director at Warner Brothers.[1][2] His first screen credit as art director was in 1951 on Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.[1]

He earned his first Academy Award nomination for art direction on Marty (1955). His work on Marty has been described as "an extraordinary example of the monochrome world".[1] He won the Oscar for art direction two year later for his work on Sayonara (1957).[3] Writing in The New York Times, Bosley Crowther touted Haworth's work on Sayonara as "handsome Japanese surroundings—outdoor gardens, graceful, sliding-paneled homes and delicate teahouses, shown in colors of exceptional taste and blend."[1]

He was also nominated for the same award for his work on Some Like It Hot (1959), Pepe (1960), The Longest Day (1962), and What a Way to Go! (1964). His other notable works include Friendly Persuasion (1956), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Ride the Wild Surf (1964), The Beguiled (1971), Jeremiah Johnson (1972), and The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea (1976).[1]

Personal life and later years

Haworth had three marriages, to Miriam Severy, Hallie Stagner, and Anna Wackevitch. All three marriages ended in divorce.[4] He had four children: production designer Sean Haworth, pop artist Jann Haworth, and daughters Maria and Holly.[2]

From 1973 until his death in 1993, Haworth lived in Sundance, Utah.[1] He was in an automobile accident in December 1992 and developed a blood clot in his brain. He died three months later in February 1993, at age 75.[4][5]

He was posthumously inducted into the Art Directors Guild Hall of Fame in 2009.[6]
