Who Wears it Better?
Cleo was a character in the film "The Big Broadcast of 1938" portrayed by Shirley Ross. Although most today have probably never heard of the film, dollmaker Robert Tonner created a porcelain doll honoring Cleo as part of his Edith Head collection.
I thought Gene Marshall would look darn good in this outfit, too, so I decided to let her try it on including the wig.
As you can see, it fits just right! The earring posts are a bit big for a resin Gene, so they would need to be filed down. I let Photoshop fix it for now!
One thing from the movie that many people DO remember is the song "Thanks for the Memory" which became Bob Hope's theme song.
