Found this link from The Courage Of Lsssie. I'm not sure if Liz is still a child or an adult in this film

A column by my friend Bill Eggert (founder of the sadly now-defunct Silent Film Society of Atlanta) on Elizabeth Taylor.

The French Cinémathèque has put online various objects from its collection as a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. I thought it might interest some of you. Here they are:
Image
Original sketch by Edith Head for Liz's dress in A Place in the Sun (1951)

Image
Dress by Walter Plunkett for Liz in Little Women (1949, M. LeRoy)

Image
Dior suit (made by designer Marc Bohan) for Liz in Secret Ceremony (1968, J. Losey)

I saw the Little Women dress in the former Cinémathèque museum in Chaillot. Alas, in its new building, the collection on display has shrunk considerably and most of the costumes are in storage...

The fact that Edith Head could sketch like that, AND make the Place in the Sun dress, and THEN have it come out as beautiful as it is on screen is really something. I think it's even more beautiful in those pale watercolors....I didn't think such a thing was possible.

I was just thinking Elizabeth would have still have been young enough, at 46, to play Velvet Brown in the National Velvet sequel International Velvet in 1978. I'm not sure what shape she was in at that point, but IMO looked better than ever when she came out of The Betty Ford clinic. However, it was a Bryan Forbes production, so it's no surprise that his wife Nanette Newman (44)played the role herself, making a good job of it too. I think However, Elizabeth would also have been good with Christopher Plummer and Tatum O'Neil

One thing though NV was set in the 1920s, while IV is in the 70s, so the sums don't add up. If NV had been set in 1944 when it was made, then the sums would then have added up
