Joan Crawford Mildred Pierce dress
The dress would be a top quality piece of movie memorabilia, but has been dyed and altered, making it far less appealing

Mildred Pierce is considered Crawford's finest role, gaining her the Best Actress award at the Oscars in 1946 and acclaim as one of the greatest actresses of the era.

The dress is selling with a minimum bid of $20,000.

The dress was originally white, but has been dyed to a flesh tone colour - likely for use in a later Warner Bros film. It is also missing its original belt, but is supplied with a later example.

In 2012, the Oscar Crawford won for her performance in Mildred Pierce sold for $426,732 at Nate D Sanders.
