Debbie Reynolds’ Hollywood memorabilia collection will make a return visit to the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills in a new multimedia exhibition, “Debbie Reynolds: The Exhibit.”

The new show, which will open July 23 and continue through 2011, comes a month after the recording-breaking exhibition and auction of nearly 600 items from Reynolds’ expansive collection.


The show will feature more items from Reynolds’ treasure trove of memorabilia, including costumes, posters and props from such films as “Gone With the Wind,” “Show Boat,” “The Yearling” and John Huston’s “Moulin Rouge.’ There will also be costumes worn by such Hollywood legends as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Carmen Miranda and Doris Day. New items will be added to the exhibition each month.

The exhibition last month attracted thousands of fans. The auction earned more than $23 million with Monroe’s signature white ‘subway’ dress from 1955’s ‘The Seven Year Itch’ selling for $4.6 million.

The new exhibit will encompass the first two floors of the Paley.
