    Description

    Gloria Swanson's Nightgown from Sunset Boulevard. This pink chiffon nightgown was worn by Swanson in Billy Wilder's classic 1950 film noir. Cast as fading, delusional, and possibly psychotic former silent-era film star Norma Desmond, Swanson gave the performance of a lifetime and earned an Academy Award nomination in the process. The gown is in Very Fine condition with a Paramount costume label bearing Swanson's name sewn inside the front. Previously auctioned by Sotheby's in 2002.
