Event description

Description

“Gowns by Adrian.”

From his earliest days working at MGM, the studio with "more stars than there are in heaven," costume designer Gilbert Adrian had a vision and showcased a new era in costume design for the screen. This pre-Code immorality tale is no exception, with Norma Shearer as a sexually liberated singleton in slinky bias-cut satin sheaths (they predate Adrian's creation of Jean Harlow's signature look). About a father-daughter relationship that comes close to ruin over a mobster, with the famous courtroom finale that earned Lionel Barrymore an Academy Award, and Clark Gable in an early role.

With a slide show introduction to 1930s silver screen glamour by series host Nathalie Atkinson
