A Kay Francis costume from The White Angel
Warner Bros., 1936. Designed by Orry-Kelly. Smokey brown 2-piece Puritan-style costume comprising a long-sleeved bodice with a vertical fold/stripe design down the front on either side of the zipper, with subtle interior boning and a bustier-type construction, with cream-colored collar and cuffs, bearing a modern Warner Bros. barcode; together with a full-length matching skirt with a brown grosgrain waistband, bearing an interior red-lettered "Warner Bros. Pic Inc." label inscribed, "McLaren / 8117A-980" in black ink, and a Warner Bros. yellow cleaning tag. Francis plays nurse Florence Nightingale in this drama directed by William Dieterle which drifted from her usual sensual roles as a femme fatale and showcased her ability as a serious actress. Francis was one of Warner Bros.' top stars in the 1930s, and costumes worn by her rarely come to auction. She is seen wearing the ensemble in most of the film and in many publicity photographs. In the film, she wears a black apron over the skirt which is not included here. Accompanied by a DVD of the film.
