Some day I hope the critics will say of me, not only that I wear a sarong becomingly, but also that I gave a good performance. I’ve never had any real theatrical training you know.

profile: Dorothy Lamour is best known for her role in “The Jungle Princess” (1936), in which she wore a floral print sarong designed by costumer Edith Head. The floral sarong would become her trademark. She started her entertainment career with aspirations of becoming a professional singer.
