Winslet Gets All Dolled Up

If you've thought of filling your bathtub with water and ice cubes and re-creating a night to remember by drowning your dollies as Titanic's Rose shivers on your rubber ducky, we have good news. Galoob Toys has announced that it will release a series of Titanic collector's dolls based on Kate Winslet's fiery character.

The first "Rose DeWitt Bukater" doll will be 11 1/2 inches tall and come dressed in the same empire-waisted crimson evening gown that her big-screen alter ego wore when she first met Leonardo DiCaprio's dashing Jack Dawson. We're assuming that the dress will be easy to doff for those late-night nude posing sessions.

"We are very happy to have the opportunity to market a series of dolls based on the very popular character of Rose from the biggest film of all time," says Gary Niles, Galoob's exec vice president of marketing and product acquisition.

The doll is scheduled to hit stores in October, with a reported retail price of around $70. Sorry, but right now there's no dead-but-still-dreamy Jack doll in the works.

What can I say but ha-ha! I paid only half that price to see "Titanic" for eight times. The difference will be covered by the tapes, the first CD and soon the second... How about a Molly Brown doll? "Now that's something you don't get to see every day!"
