This beautiful gown was made for the production Anne of the Thousand Days and was created by costume designer Margaret Furse, whose designs for the film won an Oscar for Best Costume Design in 1970. The gown was used again in the Vincent Price B Horror film Cry of the Banshee. From there it went on to be used in Carry On Henry, though trim was added onto the front of the bodice and around the waist. In 2003, the gown appeared again in Henry VIII, though by that time it was in very poor condition. From there it has been used in at least one photo shoot, in which various photos of the gown have been used for the cover of no less than five novels.
