Old costumes hang in
big Hollywood studios

LOS ANGELES (A1) - When
they need buckles to swash or
Henry XIV ball gowns, film di-
rectors can " still get them these
days - despite the racages of
time on silk and satin..
Costumes that excited millions
during the '40s might be aging
faster than the plots of some late,
late movies,'and a leading lady's
few extra pounds might endanger
a seam here and there.
But many of the old costumes
are still available, despite recent
concern that an artifacts auction
by one of the iajor studios sig-
nalled the decline and fall of
Hollywood's costume collection
-largest in the world.
The much publicized auction of
MGM artifacts two years ago
seemed to symbolize the breaking
up of the big studios. Sold to the
highest bidders were Judy Gar-
land's red slippers from "Wizard
of Oz," Greta Garbo's regal
gown from "Queen Christina,"
Clark Gable's trenchcoat of
"Comrade X."
It appeared the huge ward-
robe departments of the studdios
were remnants of a long gone
era. New filmmakers wanted to
d e p i c t contemporary sub-
jects, for which actors could
oscwr their own clothes - or
none at all.
Film companies s i m p 1 y
couldn't afford costume epics
s'1ch as Cecil DeMille once made.
The few spectacles being filmed
were shot in Spais and Yugosla-
vi,, where the government ssip-
plied armies and the costumes
were cheap.
"Costume pictures are all be-
ing made in Europe," says famed
designer Edith Head. "And since
the decline of glamor in films,
clothes are no longer important.
"Meanwhile, the studios' collec-
tions are getting older. No matter
what great care you take of
them, costumes will deteriorate.
I know, because I use many of
them for charity fashion shows.
I've used a gown I designed for
Mae West in 'She Done Him
Wrong,' and it is being held to-
gether with loving hands and
hope."
But a check at several studios
indicates that, ,with the excep-

Universal, busiest of the studios
in television filming, continues to

Burbank Studios, the combined

JUDY GARLAND: "They even
sold her magic red slippers."
"Not only do we supply cos-
tumes for Warners and Colum-
bia; we also do a lucrative busi-
ness in rentals, enough the carry
the staff and overhead."
Paramount also does a lively
rental business Wardrobe chief
Walter Hoffman says, "We can
supply anything that a producer
would need. We have somewhere
between a million and two million
costumes, and in 1967 the inven-
tory was valued somewhere
around $3.5 million to $4 million.
"Period costumes are becom-
ing more and more valuable all
the time. Since the operation is
on a paying basis, there seems
to be no reason to dlispose of the
stock."
Two years ago .20th Century
Fox sold 240 of its old costumes
to Debbie Reynolds, who also
bought many of the MGM relics
for a proposed museum. Other-
wise the Fox collection remains
intact.
