The glittering white gown that Joan Crawford wears at the Nazi dinner party can be seen again in Week-End at the Waldorf (1945). In the film the dress can be seen on an actress dancing with Keenan Wynn with some slight alternation to the front and back of the top half providing a glimpse of skin not visible on Crawford when she wore it.
