Light blue cover reading in part “Wardrobe Breakdown / Submitted By: / Al Jennings / 11-9-43;” with 36 mimeographed pages heavily annotated in pencil outlining specifics about each female and child character’s clothing; of particular interest are the numerous trimmed photographs of the cast members in costume taped throughout script; 14 are of Garland as “Esther Smith” in various ensembles and approximately 60 more show co-stars Marjorie Main, Mary Astor, and Margaret O’Brien, among other child and female extras.
