About the Costume

Olivia de Havilland first wore this knitted wool coat as Melanie Hamilton in the 1939 film Gone with the Wind. In 1970 it was worn again on Kelly Jean Peters as Olga Crabb in Little Big Man. Walter Plunkett designed the piece, and the fact that it was pulled from stock for use over thirty years after it was originally created is a testament to how well it was made. This costume was sold at Christie’s on July 24, 2002 for $16,730.
