    "Whispering Smith" -- Brenda Marshall Green Skirt and Gauchos Designed by Mary K. Dodson. Brenda Marshall (1915-1992), best remembered as Errol Flynn's leading lady in The Sea Hawk (1940) and the long-time (and eventually divorced) wife of William Holden, wore this stunningly green set of skirt and gauchos in Paramount's Technicolor 1948 Western Whispering Smith, co-starring Alan Ladd and Robert Preston. The designer was Mary K. Dodson, prominent costume designer for Paramount Studios from 1945 to 1951. The name "Brenda Marshall" appears on a Paramount costume tag inside the waistband. Included in the lot is a DVD of Whispering Smith. Excellent condition.
