Lot 9
CELESTE HOLM Dress worn in Another Sun, 1940
. The black dress with braided straps above a fringed body. Another Son opened on February 23, 1940 at the National Theatre, the southernmost Broadway theater now known as the Nederlander Theatre, but closed after only 11 performances. Celeste Holm played the role of Maria and wore this stylish gown. Previous to Another Sun, Ms. Holm's first Broadway appearances came in 1938 in Gloriana, which ran only five performances, and in William Saroyan's The Time of Your Life, 1939-40. In 1937, at just 20 years only, Ms. Holm had toured with Leslie Howard's Hamlet with a small role and as understudy for Ophelia. Broadway worn costumes from this Golden Age period are scarce.
