    Movie-Themed Paper Dresses (Universal/20th Century Fox, Late 1960s-1970). Paper Dresses (23" X 37" & 23.5" X 38.5").
    The 1960s were a time of innovation and creativity, and in this lot we are offering one of the more unique combinations of the two traits: the paper dress. Born from the wide availability of paper products, the coming of consumerism, and the pop art movement, many teeny boppers bought these disposable dresses in one of the biggest novelty fads of the decade. Very rarely seen, as most were destroyed, these vintage fad clothes feature portraits of celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando and one dress features posters for films such as Patton, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Both of the dresses have some creasing and small stains. The Universal dress has slight staining on the collar and some very minor unraveling at the seams. Neither were ever worn. Folded, Very Fine.
