Dwarf (Angelo Rossitto) costume
An original costume used in the production of The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm, the 1962 fantasy picture directed by Harry Levin and George Pal.
This costume can be seen worn by Angelo Rossitto and one of the dwarfs from Snow White in the dream sequence in which Wilhelm Grimm lies ill in bed and names his various characters. The six piece costume was bespoke made for Rossitto by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer wardrobe department and comprises the following elements accompanied by two original cardboard wardrobe tags each hand inscribed in black marker.
The costume remains in generally excellent screen used vintage condition exhibiting some minor age related wear and lacking a small part of the apron tie, overall very fine.
An extraordinarily rare museum quality example of original wardrobe from this fantasy classic for which Mary Wills won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
