About the Costume

This lovely Victorian-style gown was designed by Walter Plunkett for the 1947 film Green Dolphin Street, where it was worn by Donna Reed as Marguerite Patourel. Unfortunately, since the film is in black and white, the lovely color of the dress can not be seen. A lobby card promoting the film showed the gown as a pale pink, which was incorrect (though incorrect coloring on lobby cards was frequent).

A couple of years later, in 1949, the gown’s true color was shown to be a pale blue. It was seen in a production of Little Women, where Eloise Hardt wore it as Sally Gardiner. Costumes for the film were also designed by Plunkett, who, interestingly enough, designed the costumes for the 1933 version of Little Women as well.
