Joan Crawford, star of Rain at the State and Orpheum Theatres, has been known as a style leader for the younger generation. She wore one dress in Letty Lynton which has become a favorite all over the country, and young girls everywhere demand at the department stores, “I want a Letty Lynton dress.”
But in Rain she will set no styles. Her entire wardrobe will cost $17.50 as compared with the thousands of dollars usually spent for her costumes.
It took some time to assemble the gaudy skirt and jacket, the small, feathered hat, the near-silk stockings, the imitation fur and the high-heeled, cheap shoes, but they were bought at Los Angeles department stores and came to $17.50 in all. And she wears the same outfit throughout the picture, save for the scene in which she wears an elaborate negligee of the cheapest material.
