Harley Earl: Designer Extraordinaire

A 8 minute documentary on Harley Earl, legendary car designer and one of the fathers of the modern automotive design and styling process.


“Harley Earl, the larger than life, first head of styling for a major automobile manufacturer gave the world the joy of excess in color, chrome and steel.”

“Recruited by GM in the late 20s to transform its drab autos and make them stand out from the offerings of its competitors, Earl transformed the industry and the American psyche.”
