Virginia Weidler paper doll, 1942
I don't usually collect celebrity dolls, but once in awhile I find a cut set at a good price (usually at conventions, not on eBay). Here's one I bought at Jayne Keller's paper doll party a couple of years ago.
I always loved Weidler in The Women and The Philadelphia Story, and once I found she had a paper doll, I hunted it down. Whitman Pub., 1942. It might have been a wartime economy to have two dolls in the same pose; usually two dolls are posed differently and have different wardrobes.
Virginia Weidler died awfully young, at the age of 41, of a heart attack.
