Hollywood Goes to Egypt Paper Dolls



Since the very beginning of the movie industry, Hollywood has been fascinated by Ancient Egypt, by tales of glorified rulers, slaves and mummies. This new paper doll book by talented watercolor artist Sandra Vanderpool takes us to that fabled land as seen through the lens of movie cameras over the years.

Hollywood Goes to Egypt is an eight page book starring four paper dolls, one male and three females. They are ready to visit the costume department and borrow the exotic costumes originally designed for some of the most famous Egyptian-inspired movies. There are several costumes from the many versions of Cleopatra worn by Theda Bara, Claudette Colbert and Liz Taylor. Other Egyptian-inspired films included in the book: The Sheik, The Mummy, The Son of the Sheik, She, The Ten Commandments, Serpent of the Nile and Carry on Cleo. This lushly illustrated book includes 4 figures and 19 elaborate costumes from 12 films spanning more than six decades.
