From image ark no. 21198/zz002bzz9z: Peggy Hamilton, style expert of the Los Angeles Times, models one of the gowns worn by Maria Corda in First National's "Love and the Devil." Bird-of-Paradise sprays adorn the close-fitting hat of jet; while the gown is a creation of black satin edged with silver filigree. The divided train is a late feature and exquisite graceful note. Peggy Hamilton modeling a gown and hat worn by Maria Corda in the 1929 movie "Love and the Devil" with a metal lattice behind her. This gown was probably designed by Max Rée, who was director of costume design for First National Pictures at this time. See also: ark no. 21198/zz002bzg6n.
