    We’re so used to thinking of Lucille Ball as one way–the I Love Lucy way–and to see her like this, comparable to any glamorous contemporary, is nothing short of astounding. Beautiful.

      She modeled in New York – working for milliner and dress designer Hattie Carnegie. Just gorgeous.

    What did they call her at Metro in the Forties? Technicolor Tessie!

      I think her hair was first dyed red for “Du Barry Was A Lady” – and it stayed that way for the rest of her life.

    Okay, now I have to watch the whole thing… Wasn’t she a snooty red headed night club singer who was awful to Skelton and in love with Gene Kelly???

      I can’t remember !! So I have to watch it too. But I do remember her in The Big Street with Henry Fonda and she was a vain nightclub singer and he was a busboy in love with her. From a Daymon Runyon story.
