Then, when Debbie Reynolds was just 20 years old, she starred opposite Gene Kelly and Donald O’Conner in the 1952 hit musical Singin’ in the Rain. That success propelled Reynolds into starring roles in a number of popular musicals, most famously in The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964), which earned Reynolds’ an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. This month, Reynolds is auctioning off her Hollywood memorabilia collection—including Charlie Chaplin’s bowler and Marilyn Monroe’s subway dress from The Seven Year Itch – at The Paley Center in Los Angeles.
