Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Guenevere in Camelot, 1967.  Costume Designer John Truscott won the Academy Award for his work in the film.  The Queen’s gown took twelve dressmakers over one month to crochet. They then spent another month decorating the dress and eleven-foot train with pearl shells and pumpkin seeds.  The price tag?  $12,000 (in 1967).
