#9345 - c. 1970's BOB MACKIE "Flame" Dance Costume worn by MARY TYLER MOORE! If you are as old as I, then you probably remember the original "Dick Van Dyke Show' .. the episode showing Laura Petrie as the USO Showgirl, with Rob's attempts to ask her out! And Yes... Mary Tyler Moore began her career at age 18 as the "Happy Hotpoint" pixie - a singing and dancing home appliance! Fully sequined on a nude base. Back metal zipper and fully sequined attached panties. I've been trying to figure out when Mary wore this.. but Google is coming up empty. Since Carol Channing found my website, perhaps Mary Tyler Moore will do the same and let me know! :) Or heck, Bob Mackie would be just as good!: ) There is no Mackie label in the costume, but sold by Profiles in History auction house in Beverly Hills . with an excellent reputation. Sorry, no COA, but the Mary Tyler Moore label is inside the costume. Measures: 34" bust, 24" waist, 35" hips (don't be any larger.. there is no give in this!)
