One of my favourite actors of all times. Met him once briefly in 1986, a very charming and most intriguing man. This photograph although dating from the 30’s is very contemporary in style indeed.

The Wizard of Oz (1939) - costume tests on Judy Garland as Dorothy.

According to Alison Nastasi, “there were several different pinafores costume designers explored using in The Wizard of Oz before settling on the famous gingham dress worn by Judy Garland. They also tried out various wigs (including a blonde one), makeup styles (one very baby-doll-esque), and shoes (one pair Arabian in style). Judy’s stand-in also had her own dress — a sepia-rinsed version for the scene when Dorothy opens up the farmhouse door and the movie switches to Technicolor.”
