This particular doll/outfit was one of the most recent ones that joined my collection. I’m a sucker when it comes to bold stripes, and this circa 1949 outfit has ’em in spades! From the story card:
“Bird of Paradise” has wrapped for a long weekend. And Gene has decided, quite on the spur of the moment, to pamper herself with some time away from the glare of studio lights.
Without a plan in her head, she hops out of bed and throws some clothes into her valise. Then she puts on her “lucky” outfit and lets the chips fall where they may.
First, a quick call to her agent. What luck! She’s been offered the lead in “Monaco.” That’s the way to start the weekend!
At the train station, the porter takes her valise. “Where you headin’, Miss Marshall?” he asks. She leaves it up to him. “Well, Palm Springs is awfully pretty this time of year…”
