One of the most famous stories is the one about Roxelana, Odaliske and later first wife of Süleyman the Magnificent.
"Nightfall came quickly. A eunuch escorted Hürrem to Sultan Süleyman’s bedroom. The eunuch tapped on the door three times before it opened.
“Come in my beauty,” exclaimed the Sultan as the door shut tight behind them.
When morning came Sultan Süleyman danced out of bed and began preparing for his day. He then noticed Hürrem’s morning stir, and suddenly dropped everything to rejoin her in bed.
“Hürrem,” he said, “come back tonight and every night. I have fallen in love with you!""

“The Curtain Dress, symbol of Scarlett’s will to survive, was worn in three scenes: the jail scene in which Scarlett asks Rhett for financial assistance, the scene in which Scarlett walks through the Atlanta streets with Mammy, and the scene in which Scarlett meets Frank Kennedy.
Also known as the Drapery Dress and the Portieres Dress, the dress has a moss green velvet over-skirt that parts in the front to reveal a chartreuse velvet underskirt. It has fitted sleeves with a semi-cape on the left shoulder and a drapery cord belt.The color of the dress presented Plunkett with several problems. It had to suit the color of Vivien Leigh’s eyes and it had to conform to Technicolor specifications. Furthermore, it had to look as if it were made from the draperies at Tara. So the dress was aged as if the sun had faded the material.
The replica of the green curtain dress worn by Scarlett O’Hara was made of 16 yards of Italian cotton velveteen. The silk tassels and cording were reproduced by Scalamandre of New York. The dress took over 200 hours to complete, from April 22 to July 8, 1986. The original is also housed at the Ransom Center.
