“Forgotten Hollywood” – Barbie’s Tribute to the Golden Age!

Posted on October 8, 2011 by raideoman1 | No Comments

Manny P. here… Barbie - Pillow Talk

   Laurie (my wife) recently purchased a special collector’s gift set edition of Barbie and Ken designed in the style of Doris Day and Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk, the Oscar-winning 1959 film. Russell Rouse took home a statuette for his Story and Screenplay written directly for the Screen.

   What I discovered is that a Barbie collector’s website exists for you to find a variety of designs modified for the iconic doll, which offers a unique tribute to Hollywood’s Golden Age. By the way, keeping Barbie in her original box also adds value to the collection.

Barbie - To Catch a Thief   Barbie’s favorite actress may be Grace Kelly. Three designer wardrobes compliment the former Princess of Monaco. My favorite is a dress resembling an outfit Grace wore in To Catch a Thief. Accessories include a clutch purse and scarf.

   Other wardrobe tributes include Sinatra and Elvis. Here is the link to a website promoting the Barbie collector series:
