From the well-kept collection of a meticulous Doll collector: Miss Gene Marshall in "Gene's Stolen Moments" RARE, Custom color and redesign. Miss Gene Marshall in "Gene's Stolen Moments" is brand new, and has been professionally styled specifically for this ensemble. Her long, shiny platinum blonde hair has been styled in a half updo with the sides twisting up and wrapped in a piece of her own hair.
Beautiful waves and curls cascade all the way down to the small of her back. Her ensemble was brand new prior to it's redesigned color and professional steam press. The style of the gown is circa 1942.This 2-piece silk satin suit is a shimmering silver gray -- subtly gorgeous! As it catches the light in different poses. The top part of the suit has a hood that can be pulled up for cold weather or to "disappear" into the shadows. It is the perfect size for tucking Miss Marshall's magnificent long hair into... It has three quarter length sleeves, opens at the front, is tailored to fit perfectly and has a rounded edge, as well as a beating design also in gray beads with pink jeweled accents that match her jewelry. The matching skirt of the suit is long with a slight train and a rounded curve with a slit to the knees at the front.
Miss Marshall also wears a pair of black gloves which reach the three quarter length sleeves of her suit, and carries a gray "fur" muff, for her hands, as it gets cold that evening. To finish her look, she wears matching jewelry of silver tone and pink jewels including necklace, bracelet, and earrings, all with dangling accents. And, of course, she wears sheer black hosiery, and strappy black shoes with pink soles and heels.
Original design by Jose Ferrand. She wears a two-toned pink lipstick to match, giving her lips depth, and gray slightly Smoky eyeliner.Every actor or actress wonders, What if... After they have turned down a role, and the film became a hit starring someone else... "Stolen Moments" premiered in 1942 starring Madra Lord.
Gene was just getting her start in Hollywood at the time, and this was her first shot at the lead role... But something about the script had bothered her... She didn't want to scoff or laugh at her family, (the aristocracy), and "foolishly" fall in love.
She wanted her character to be loving and respectful of all... But she had not found her voice yet, and she didn't have the clout in Hollywood to demand a rewrite of the script... And so, she said, "no thank you" and waited for the right part to come along.. What if she had taken the role?What if the film had been a smashing success for her just as it was for Madra Lord? That is how Gene would have wanted to play the role, including a much more subtle but glamorous color for the costume for the climatic scene with the father of her love interest. Pink just seemed much too frivolous for the character as she saw her, and, as well, unsuitable for the weather, as it was winter... And pink was usually deemed a spring color... However it did seem perfect for Madra to wear the color... Gene wondered if Madra even knew that the role was offered to her first, and that she had turned it down... Perhaps she did, and perhaps she thought Gene was a fool for doing so. Gene comes in her original white signature box.
