More costumes

18 Jun

There are quite a lot of costumes auctioned off at the moment, including the famous Don Juan costume which you cannot see in the film. I always thought it was black, but is apparently of a beautiful dark green colour. Anybody in for the cash?…

Against the 6000$, this lot of several costumes is peanuts!…

And for the ladies:…

Tina, this shows in a way that a serious dealer is able to track down the origin of a costume. Maybe your trousers were never used in a film? Which could be a reason for the low price and why there is no film title written in them?

Here are some more: from Silver River:…

Captain Blood:…

The Sun Also Rises:…

Interestingly, the red Don Juan costume you can see here (…) when you scroll down a little was up for auction in 2002 (…), but it was not sold. I wonder how it made its way to the exhibition…

Hope you enjoyed!

    Thank you, Kathleen, glad you enjoyed it. I overread the 21 inch waist – this may well be an explanation for her behaviour towards Errol! ;-))

    I went to the links, they were great. I liked being able to see the costumes in color and also the link where the gal went to the museum and all of her comments. I knew Bette Davis was short in height but didn't realize she had a 21 inch waist! Or did they cinch her up so tight that she was beyond comfort and took it out on EF when she slapped him in that famous scene? You put a lot of work into this post–thank you!
