Scarlett in Drapes
Look at that determination! All dressed up with no place to go, Scarlett O'Hara has just been turned down for the $300 she asked Rhett Butler to give her so that she could save her beloved plantation Tara. Anyone who knows Scarlett knows that our resourceful gal would find another way...even if she has to trod through the muddy streets of Atlanta to do it.
Tonner's version of this iconic dress is absolutely wonderful, with the only real flaw being the outrageous feathers on the hat.
The feathers are so bountiful that they hide the beautiful detail of the golden rooster claw beneath.
In this shot from the movie, Scarlett (Vivien Leigh) is giving Rhett (Clark Gable) the "moonlight and magnolias" before her rough hands reveal the unvarnished truth about the trouble at Tara.
Wouldn't that have been hilarious if Tonner had given a second set of hands for this doll with calluses?
