Lettie Lee, born Flora Bell Fain, was a Hollywood costume designer. She was both a gown supervisor and a costume designer; she designed the costumes for several 1930s noir and early “Talkie” films. She most notably dressed Fay Wray in Ann Carver’s Profession, a film that directly followed her star turn in King Kong.

“Lettie Lee was born Flora Belle Thain, not Fain. She was my grandmothers cousin. My grandmother was a book keeper for Lettie Lee and a part time model. Flora had a sister named Lettie Lee Thain. They were born in Texas. Thank you.” Lonnegren Stone Heath
