About the Costume

Designed by Gile Steele, this costume was made for the 1952 film Scaramouche, where Eleanor Parker wore it as Lenore. The outfit was seen a second time (in black and white) in 1953 on an extra in I Love Melvin.

This costume eventually sold for $2,500 at auction. It has faded heavily over the years, and the fabric has frayed in places. Nonetheless, it is still easily identifiable as the same costume that appeared on film sixty years ago.
