Veteran art director and set designer who entered the film industry in the mid-1940s and worked consistently through the 70s, designing the sets for a wide range of films--from the film noir melodrama "Kiss the Blood Off My Hands" (1948) and the lush Douglas Sirk "women's picture" "Magnificent Obsession" (1954) to the low-budget sci-fi classic, "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (1957). Levitt earned Oscar nominations for her work on the picture-pretty "Pillow Talk" (1959), the popular classic "The Sound of Music" (1965) and Roman Polanski's retro film noir "Chinatown" (1974). She was also responsible for the deliciously creepy look of the TV series, "The Addams Family," in the mid-1960s.
