A Marilyn Monroe worn dress from the film River of No Return (20th Century Fox, 1954). Worn for her role as Kay Weston as she sings “I’m Gonna File My Claim.” The green velour dress was designed by Travilla. Two high slits create a panel in the front of the skirt that reveals a red tiered underskirt. Exaggerated bustle at back, with ribbon and beaded trim at shoulders.
Monroe conjured a saloon hall vixen to perform this role. The provocative green gown she wore during this song and dance routine is offered for sale along with Monroe’s personal phone book, pearl necklace, medical prescription orders and a rare painting created by the iconic actress.
