AN ADRIAN COSTUME DESIGN FOR MYRNA LOY FOR WHAT PRICE BEAUTY?
Pathé Exchange, 1925. Pencil and gouache on illustration board, signed at lower right, ("Adrian"), and inscribed on lower left: "Birthday Greeting / Myrna Loy." The drawing, which depicts a blonde Myrna Loy in a sleek black gown with low gold sash, was executed for the Natacha Rambova-written and produced silent. This was one of the earliest film appearances of Myrna Loy, who played an exotic vamp, and among the earlier films for which Adrian designed costumes. The two would work together again more than a decade later on Wife Vs. Secretary (1936).
