Featuring appearances and comments by a host of fellow New York icons, including Tom Wolfe and Anna Wintour, Richard Press’s winning and affectionate documentary on the life and times of photographer Bill Cunningham demonstrates just how profoundly Cunningham changed ideas of fashion and style in post-WWII America. Cunningham’s influential “On the Street” and “Evening Hours” photographic contributions to the Style section of The New York Times—the former capturing the “woman on the street,” the latter the fashion cognoscenti at society functions—defined “chic” to America while also showing the European fashion crowd the inventiveness and joie de vivre of ever-stylish New Yorkers.

Press elicits such winning and improbable tidbits from the octogenarian shutterbug—who, from his bicycle on Manhattan street corners, can still be seen snapping photos of women wearing interesting clothing combinations—as the fact that he was a working-class kid and failed milliner who first encountered Paris fashion while on leave from the US military. A joyful celebration of a singular New York treasure, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
