Ginger wearing the dress
This is Mary Ann and I have just returned from Planet Hollywood in Myrtle
Beach, SC. I went there specifically to have lunch with "Ginger Grant's"
beautiful beaded gown. As you enter the restaurant and go down a flight of
steps, you will see her dress on display. It is gorgeous and she must have
been extremely tiny then, although, you can see at the back of the dress
where it has been pulled in to fit the dress form. The dress is cased in
glass along with a plaque showing the robot and Ginger and the episode she
wore the gown. There are so many colored lights hanging overhead, the
lights make the dress appear yellow or gold in pictures. But, in person, it
is definitely white and in very good condition. If you ever get a chance to
go to Myrtle Beach, please plan to have lunch or dinner at Planet Hollywood
located at Broadway at the Beach. There are lots of Hollywood memorabilia
there and definitely worth the trip. Just click on www.broadwayatthebeach.com
and see all the wonderful fun times you can have.
Til next time!
