About the Costume

This fantastic staircase was built for Orson Welles’ 1942 film The Magnificent Ambersons at the RKO Gower Street Studios. The staircase stood as the centerpiece of the set, and was constructed like a real home, though the walls could be raised and lowered as needed to allow the camera to pass through for long, continuous takes. The staircase and other parts of the set were used again in another 1942 film, Cat People. Finally, the stairs were used a third time in the 1943 film The Falcon in Danger.
