She is very rare and hard to find, especially in mint condition, never removed from her original box. Gene is dressed in a beautiful c. 1961 gold brocade evening sheath with matching overskirt and "fur" trimmed cape. Long light turquoise gloves, a matching, elaborate crystal/beaded necklace and earrings which include the turquoise of the gloves, hose, and open-toe matching shoes complete her stunning look. Final accessory is a small Gene-sized scrapbook (less than 1.5 in either dimension).All Gene dolls are 16 tall and they have many separately available fashion outfits and patterns for sewing. The story for this Gene is as follows: The reception was in full swing, and Gene was having the time of her life. A well-known publisher was planning to do a special book celebrating Gene's twentieth year in show business, and tonight's festivities were to announce the project.
Gene had made her way to a quiet corner, sipping a glass of champagne, when she felt a tap on her shoulder. The voice behind her was deep and rich--and unfamiliar.
Gene turned to see a handsome man in a tuxedo, tall and dark, with flecks of gray at his temples. " "Not yet--and I though ti was time. It sounds like I'm a textbook!What I mean to say is I've been assigned to work closely with you to record your memories for our book. And so I'd like to present you with this... And he handed her a beautifully wrapped package.
Gene pulled away the paper. There in her hands was a beautiful scrapbook, with her signature "G" inscribed on the front in silver. I want you to spend the next year filling this for me, he said, taking her hand an laughing.
Come on and tell, Star! Put in any memories you treasure; clippings, photos, memorabilia--anything that you can think of that's made your life in show business the special one.And as she gazed into his deep, warm eyes, Gene added one more memory to her mental scrapbook..
