The Palm Beach Story


Last night we watched The Palm Beach Story (1942) which stars Claudette Colbert and Joel McCree. Claudette Colbert's clothing is gorgeous and was designed by Irene. One of the most chic and unusual outfits in the movie was one that Claudette, who was riding on a train on her way to get a divorce, fashioned out of a Pullman blanket and men's pajamas creating a skirt from the blanket and a blouse and turban from the pajamas.

You can purchase The Palm Beach Story for $7.99 over at Amazon
