Mary Pickford, 1924
“I’m sick of Cindrella parts, of wearing rags and tatters. I want to wear smart clothes and play the lover.”
~ Mary Pickford (1892-1979)
Mary got her wish when she was cast in the leading role of the historical romance movie, “Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall,” which was made in 1924. By the way, the stunt where Dorothy rides her horse up the steps and onto the three-foot wide wall was performed by Mary Pickford herself, after the stuntwoman’s horse damaged a leg.

My ex boyfriend’s granddad used to love telling me how he got to drive Ava Gardner around when she was in Melbourne for the filming of On The Beach.

A Marilyn Monroe worn dress from the film River of No Return (20th Century Fox, 1954). Worn for her role as Kay Weston as she sings “I’m Gonna File My Claim.” The green velour dress was designed by Travilla. Two high slits create a panel in the front of the skirt that reveals a red tiered underskirt. Exaggerated bustle at back, with ribbon and beaded trim at shoulders.
Monroe conjured a saloon hall vixen to perform this role. The provocative green gown she wore during this song and dance routine is offered for sale along with Monroe’s personal phone book, pearl necklace, medical prescription orders and a rare painting created by the iconic actress.
