Pair of elaborate period costumes for Agnes Moorehead and Dolores Costello from The Magnificent Ambersons. (RKO, 1942) Silver satin floral pattern elaborate ball gown with matching hat worn by Agnes Moorehead as “Fanny Minafer”, together with aubergine silk-velvet and delicate lace conservative robe worn by Dolores Costello as “Isabel Amberson”, in Orson Welles’ studio-butchered second film, The Magnificent Ambersons. Considering nearly two-thirds of Welles’ creation was cut by studio heads in his post-production absence, it is presumed both these gowns ended up on the cutting room floor, as the labels in each are correct for this production. Silver gown reads “CP7-540-Period 1880 Moorehead” and purple robe reads “C-2936 (1905) Costello”.
