When millions of people tune into the hit drama Mad Men each week one of the first faces they see in the show’s iconic, award-winning title sequence, is of a top fashion model of the 1950s and 1960s.
79-year old Gita Hall is that model.
She’s filed a law suit with the Los Angeles Superior Court against Lionsgate Entertainment which distributes the show, claiming her image was stolen.
Hall says she has never given consent for Lionsgate to use her image.
The lawsuit estimates Mad Men has earned more than a billion dollars so far and calls her image the center piece of the show’s opening the same opening credits that won an Emmy in 2008 for outstanding title design.
