The now defunct studio, RKO, was known in the ’30s for their Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers films, of which they made nine. Because the films were from the same studio, and the films themselves were similar in needing big dance number costumes, it’s no surprise that costumes from their other similar films were reused again fairly frequently.

This example is actually a silk pair of pajamas that was designed by Walter Plunkett for the 1933 film Flying Down to Rio, where it was worn on Dolores Del Rio as Belinha De Rezende.  It was used again the next year in The Gay Divorcee on Betty Grable as Dance Speciality.

When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.

You, sirs, are part of the problem. *stink eye*

LOVE THIS!
