Ferragamo at the Movies 1940

The Thief of Bagdad (1940) is an early British technicolor Arabian Nights fantasy with costumes by Oliver Messel, Marcel Vertes and John Armstrong. It was influential in it's storytelling, first use of blue screens and chroma key process.
The Princess (June Duprez) and Halima (Mary Morris) wear Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which fit perfectly into the grand spectacle.

June Duprez and handmaidens, Glynis Johns was one but I couldn't spot her.
