A Barbara Stanwyck dress from The File on Thelma Jordan, also worn by Teresa Wright in Something to Live For
Paramount Pictures, 1950. Designed by Edith Head. Blue-gray linen cap-sleeved day dress with a vertical design of cream-colored stitching from top to bottom, with a flared skirt and built-in cream-colored belt, bearing an interior blue-lettered "Paramount" label inscribed, "Teresa Wright" in black ink. Universally beloved Barbara Stanwyck is believably evil in this underrated film noir directed by Robert Siodmak in which she plays Wendell Corey for a fool. Edith Head, well known for reusing costumes, used this dress two years later for Teresa Wright in Something to Live For (1952) in which she plays an alcoholic. Both actresses wore the dress in their respective films as well as in publicity portraits. Accompanied by 2 publicity stills and a color lithograph of Stanwyck wearing the dress.
