An Emerald City citizen coat from The Wizard of Oz
MGM, 1939. Designed by Adrian. Kelly green hip-length felt coat with symmetrical cream-colored appliques, forest green trim, and large cream-colored buttons on either side of the front, attached together with a horizontal applique with hook-and-eye closures, with puffed shoulders and wide bell sleeves, bearing an interior green-lettered "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" label inscribed, "38" in ink. Adrian, who was MGM's top costume designer in the 1930s, allowed his imagination to soar in the unforgettable costumes worn by all of the characters throughout The Wizard of Oz. His use of geometric shapes, oversized accoutrements, and brilliant colors brought the Land of Oz and Emerald City to dazzling life, and he is best remembered for his work on this film. The Emerald City citizens who wore the jacket can be seen in several scenes during the visit to Emerald City, including when the witch spells out "Surrender Dorothy" with her broom. Accompanied by a vintage re-release 1970 photo and a DVD of the film.
Provenance: the estate of Wes Shank.
