Fred Valles later Arlington Valles, 1886-1970 was best-known as a Hollywood costume designer. Wiki:- Born as Fred Valles, this Hollywood costume designer took the more grandiose name Arlington Valles (4 May 1886 in London -12 April 1970 in Los Angeles) as his professional handle, eventually jettisoning the 'Arlington' part completely. He first provided costumes for the 1938 version of A Christmas Carol. He did noticeably good work on National Velvet (1944), Albert Lewin's The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945), The Yearling (1946) and That Forsyte Woman (1949, for which he received an Academy Award nomination). In 1960, his efforts on his last film, Spartacus, won him an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, Color, shared with Bill Thomas.
