Lucy Costumes In the Debbie Reynolds Auction


Recommended Posts

The auction of Debbie Reynolds' Hollywood costumes, props, etc. has ended, but you can still download the auction catalogue here:

Among the absolutely stunning pieces are two Lucy items: the outfit worn in The Long, Long Trailer when Nicky and Tacy go to the trailer show (page 159) and an outfit from DuBarry Was A Lady (page 52) that was apparently originally created and worn by Norma Shearer for Marie Antoinette (who knew?!).

 

I've been looking through this catalogue off and on all day---there are some real gems in there! I definitely recommend downloading the catalogue!

Actually...there's supposed to be at least one more chance to see a lot of this stuff up close and in person:

 

 

Debbie Reynolds: The Exhibit: All New Collection of Hollywood Treasures

Saturday, July 30, 2011 to Saturday, December 3, 2011

 

 

Debbie Reynolds: The Exhibit includes items from Gone with the Wind, Show Boat, The Yearling, and Moulin Rouge, and garments worn by legendary stars including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and many more.

 

On the heels of the success of the record-breaking Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Memorabilia Exhibit and Auction earlier this month, the Paley Center announces an all-new multimedia exhibition, Debbie Reynolds: The Exhibit, featuring more treasures from Ms. Reynolds’s collection opening July 30 at the Center’s Beverly Hills location.

 

The new exhibit is scheduled to feature iconic costumes, posters, and props from Academy Award–winning film classics including Gone with the Wind, Show Boat, The Yearling, and Moulin Rouge, as well as garments worn by a glittering array of legendary icons including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Carmen Miranda, Doris Day, and many more.

 

Ms. Reynolds’s fascinating collection will remain on view at the Paley Center throughout 2011, and additional classic items, some never before displayed to the public, will be added each month. The exhibit, which will encompass both floors of the Paley Center, will be open to the public. The first floor viewing is available free of charge. Admission to the second floor gallery space will be FREE to Paley Center Members and $6.00 for the general public. Admission tickets will be available at the door.

 

"The thousands of visitors to our initial Debbie Reynolds exhibition established the Paley Center's new gallery space as a must-see destination for media enthusiasts," commented Pat Mitchell, president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media. "The combination of our unparalleled media collection, dynamic series of public programs, and exhibits of iconic memorabilia and artifacts makes the Paley Center a very unique institution in the city's cultural landscape. The debut of Debbie Reynolds: The Exhibit will usher in a new era of major exhibitions at the Paley Center that will continue throughout the coming years with additional exhibits from major studios planned for 2012 and beyond."

 

Visitors of the exhibition will also have access to the Center’s unparalleled media archive featuring nearly 150,000 programs spanning the history of television, radio, and digital media.

 

The new exhibit will feature classic and rarely seen film clips related to the items on display and the Center will plan a series of special screenings and events to celebrate the many films and stars represented in Ms. Reynolds’s collection.

 

The initial exhibit, which brought thousands of visitors and international attention to the Paley Center, culminated in the June 18 auction by Profiles in History where Monroe’s iconic white subway dress from The Seven Year Itch sold for a staggering $4.6 million.

How sad that now that she's sold so much of her collection she's seeing her dream come true---if only on a smaller scale. It really is a shame she didn't get her museum...but looking through the catalogue will be enough. Its a shame I didn't order a physical copy of the catalogue as they're now sold out!

 

Will you be going to the exhibit, Joey? I wonder how much of her collection she's held on to for exhibits and the like...
