    Ben Hur Screen-Featured Robe Worn by George Relph. Worn by actor George Relph as Tiberius Caesar in the 1959 epic Ben Hur, this ornate ceremonial robe is an magenta, purple, and blue iridescent costume with gold floral embroidered trim with glass stones and gold acorn ornamentation. The inside fabric is a metallic, deep gold lamé. Costume designer Elizabeth Haffenden won an Academy Award for her work on the film, and the motion picture itself won 11 well-deserved Oscars. The robe is accompanied by a white short-sleeve toga garment with gold embroidered trim. Said toga was made years later by Emmy-nominated costume designer Jerry Skeels. The robe has a production tag reading: "Tiberius Caesar Robe (1959) 'Ben Hur' Worn by George Relph" written in black ink. The robe and toga are both in Fine condition. From the Randy McLaughlin Costume Collection.
