Costume Designer. He attended the Chouinard Art Institute before being hired as an art director (at age 19) by Capitol Records, where he designed album covers. After several years he left Capitol to become a costume designer in the film industry. Donfeld's first screen assignment was 1961's "Sanctuary", for which he designed Lee Remick's costumes. Bette Davis insisted he create her clothes for "Dead Ringer", Ingrid Bergman asked for him on "Walk in the Spring Rain"; he designed Ann-Margret's wardrobe for "Viva Las Vegas" and Natalie Wood's for "The Great Race". Male clients included Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jack Nicholson and Patrick Swayze. During his career he was nominated for an Academy Award four times, for "Days of Wine and Roses" (1962), "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" (1969), "Tom Sawyer" (1973), and "Prizzi's Honor" (1985).
