Trent Osborn: The Rains Came
For a period of time, Mel/Gene/Ashton-Drake had a deal where Gene & Company were allowed to use costumes from the 20th Century Fox Collection. The previously posted Marilyn Monroe costume from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" was one of these outfits. I always found it a little strange that with all the costumes available to choose from, only a handful of semi-obscure ones were chosen. This particular Trent ensemble released in 2001 was based upon one from the 1939 Tyrone Power film "The Rains Came." In photo #1, Trent is seen walking on the Universal Studios backlot, circa 1965.
From the publicity for this doll:
Twentieth Century-Fox and The Gene Marshall Collection bring you "Trent in The Fabulous Costumes of Twentieth Century-Fox." Trent attends a ball honoring the great films of Twentieth Century-Fox, wearing a traditional Indian costume from the 1930s film, "The Rains Came."
