How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

I have it on good authourity that the image above "doesn't show the real Maria used in the film but a replica made by the original creator of the costume, Walter Schukze-Mittendorf, for the French Cinematheque in Paris. The old lady aside the replica is Lotte H. Eisner, first curator of the Cinematheque.

It's thanks to her that we have one of the world's largest METROPOLIS archives in Paris, with 800 original set photos & original set drawings by Erich Kellelhut & Otto Hunte."

Cheers Fred, you've got my back ;)
