An Elizabeth Taylor wig made for Cleopatra
20th Century Fox, 1963. Dark brown hair with short bangs and curls around the face, with the hair on the back curled around cotton cords and secured with gold charms. A handwritten label on the interior net cap reads, "Elizabeth Taylor 21 1/2," and second label reads "Wig Creations Ltd. 7759." This wig is similar to several worn by Taylor in the film, but we do not believe this particular wig to be screen worn.
Wig Creations Ltd. was the company run by British wigmaker Stanley Hall, who made wigs for such stars as Sophia Loren, Marlene Dietrich, Vivien Leigh, and Katharine Hepburn, in addition to working on films such as My Fair Lady and Cleopatra.
