Bonwit Teller window display featuring a fall women's ensemble by Monte-Sano & Pruzan. The mannequin is standing in front of a table setting with a vase of sunflowers on it. The window display is also advertising the MGM film entitled "Lust for Life", which is about the life of artist Vincent Van Gogh, thus the sunflowers act as a tribute to his paintings. The mannequin is wearing a jacket and skirt set, a cap, heeled shoes and is holding a fur wrap which trails on the floor. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Premiere of Fall Fashions... the designer cut by Monte Sano and Pruzan... Suit Salon Fourth Floor... Premiere of M.G.M.'s "Lust for Life" the story of Vincent Van Gogh…"
