We Love These Dresses

How much can spectacular dresses add to a movie? Would the Trevi Fountain scene in "La Dolce Vita" be less memorable without Anita Ekberg’s stunning off –the-shoulder black dress? Would Vivien Leigh’s Scarlett O’Hara be somehow diminished without her heavy green velvet and cherry red costuming?

Those are favorites of ours. Here’s a list of other dresses we like. They all feature in movies available for loan at Great River Regional Library. If you have favorite movie dresses, go to our Facebook page and tell us about them.
