Sydney Pollack directed “Havana”, and his brother Bernie Pollack designed the costumes. Bernie had to outfit 2,000 extras and needed nearly 10,000 costumes for frequent changes during the film. The old town of Havana was recreated in the Dominican Republic with the main set measuring nearly a quarter of a mile long, taking 20 weeks to create. These garments are in very good screen worn condition and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.
