Lucille Ball Du Barry Was a Lady Screen-Worn Wig. The beautiful fiery red wig, made from human hair and hand-tied, was worn by the iconic comedienne in the 1944 musical slapstick Du Barry Was A Lady. The wig includes the studio storage box as well as the wig stock record card. The black cardboard wig box is studio-labeled: "493, ¾ Fall, Tech. Red 7", L. Ball" on the front. The wig stock index card reads "Stock No. 493, Original Player: Lucille Ball, Description: Tech. Red. ¾ Fall, Prod. #1266" in typed text, along with pencil and pen note markings. The box's entire left cover side edge missing, the right corner side edge is broken. The cover is also a bit warped. The box is in Fair condition and the wig and the record card are in Fine condition. From The MGM Wig Archive.
