How To Measure

RARE Hollywood 1940's novelty dress! This has signatures from Hollywood's greatests! James Stewart, Paulette Goddard, Charles Laughton, Henry Fonda, Burgess Meredith, Fred MacMurray, Harry Lamb..all the stars of A Miracle Can Happen* (later renamed On Our Merry Way). This dress also has the name of the movie! Done in a cold rayon with three buttons on the bodice with snaps, side metal zipper and shoulder pads. The sleeves are folded and stand out. Unlined. A real piece of Hollywood history!

Here is a link to the movie details! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Our_Merry_Way

*The film's original title A Miracle Can Happen was inspired by a segment that was deleted from the film prior to its national release. The film opened as A Miracle Can Happen in New York City, Philadelphia, and Detroit in February 1948. Reviews were dismal—the New York Daily News described it as "a million dollar cast in a ten-cent film"—and it was pulled from release. Public polls revealed most people thought the movie had a religious theme, so after the Charles Laughton episode had been removed and replaced by one with Dorothy Lamour, nine minutes thus being trimmed from the running time, it re-opened in June and was nationally released as On Our Merry Way, accompanied by an advertising campaign that emphasized it was a comedy.

Condition: Very Good Vintage: Hand washed, but a faint water ring remain where the shoulder pads sit in the back. Some very faint yellow smudges (could be color transfer) on the right side of bodice (see last pic). There are a handful of round dot sized discolorations (like watermarks) on the skirt, but these do get lost in the print and we had to hunt to find them.
