1940s Screen-Test Silk Shirt
Touch of Venus.
Any movie with Ava Gardner is worth the price of a ticket, and One Touch of Venus (1948) has a great Kurt Weill score, too.
Aside from that, the thing is preposterous. A statue of the Goddess of Love comes to life, falls for a department-store window-dresser?
If a statue of the Goddess of Love came to life in the 1940s, she would put on this blouse and be spotted at once by a vigilant Hollywood producer.
This is the blouse she would wear for the screen test. The publicity stills. Appearances at the Brown Derby. Legendary wrap parties.
Watch your step, Veronica.
And don’t you rest on your laurels, either, Rita.
1940s Screen-Test Silk Shirt (No. 6560). Slightly cropped silk blouse with narrow shirt collar in deliciously soft, shimmering silk cupro. V-neckline. Button-front closure. Half-sleeve. Loose, relaxed fit. Imported.
