Debbie Reynolds to Auction Off Marilyn's Subway Dress and Chaplin's Bowler Hat
Debbie Reynolds was pretty cute and here she is posing with a ukulele in the 50s (her website: LINK). Who knew she played? Probably for a film role. "Reynolds has amassed a large collection of movie memorabilia and, according to wikipedia, beginning in June and continuing into December 2011, she will auction off this collection. Among the more than 3500 costumes, 20,000 photographs, and thousands of movie posters, costume sketches, and props to be sold are Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat and Marilyn Monroe's white subway dress (skirt is lifted up by the breeze from a passing subway train in the film The Seven Year Itch). The latter is expected to fetch between one and two million dollars."
