An Ann Rutherford skirt from Gone With the Wind
MGM, 1939. Designed by Walter Plunkett. Pale seafoam-colored full-length skirt with the lower 14 inches of the skirt consisting of a different fabric of pale tan with subtle stripes, bearing a green-lettered "Selznick Int. Pictures Inc." interior label inscribed, "Carreen / 20-108 W.W. 358" in black ink and a second interior label inscribed, "1st dress / cotton patch." Rutherford's performance of the sweet O'Hara sister, Carreen, contrasted effectively with the whiny sister, Suellen, played by Evelyn Keyes. This skirt was worn in the scene where Suellen and Carreen have been reduced to picking cotton in the fields of Tara, a far cry from their days as pampered Southern belles. Suellen is famously slapped by Scarlett for complaining, while the docile Carreen attempts to console her regarding the Southern niceties which have faded because of the war: "I guess things like hands and ladies don't matter so much anymore." Accompanied by a DVD of the film.
