Nolan Miller designed this dressing costume for Elizabeth Taylor in her role as Alice Moffat in the made-for-TV movie Poker Alice. Nolan has a long history working for Elizabeth Taylor and fondly remembers his early days when he had a standing joke with his staff..."If Elizabeth Taylor calls, I'll be back in an hour." One day he received a call while he was away, calling back knowing it was a joke. Elizabeth Taylor answered and a wonderful working relationship and friendship was started. Fine condition. From the Nolan Miller Collection.
