Hedy Lamarr “Delilah” peacock-feather eye two-piece gown from Samson and Delilah. (Paramount, 1949) One of the final costumes for Hedy Lamarr as “Delilah,” near the end of the film, when she brings Samson up to the columns in Samson and Delilah. Two-piece biblical “concubine” type revealing gown, consisting of halter and long skirt both elaborately adorned with peacock-feather eye appliqués. Paramount labels on each read variously “Heddy” and “Hedy” Lamarr. The original turquoise substrate on both pieces disintegrated some time ago, so it has been replaced to preserve the essence of the original design. Edith Head and her team won the Oscar for Best Costume Design/ Color.
