Comments
This crinoline formed part of Elizabeth Taylor's many period costumes during the filming of "Raintree County" in central Kentucky 1956.

Elizabeth quite often wore it between shoots on Dix river. The production team had to redorate Elizabeth's bungalow to include draperies that matched her eye colour.
