  1. A very happy 97th birthday to the White Queen!
  2. Alicia Malone is my favourite of the current TCM crop. And I know I’m in the minority enjoying Ben’s presenting style. lol
  3. I don't know the identity of an artist, but it is taken from a foreign language Meet the People poster.
  4. Happy Birthday to this dynamic, ageless goddess!
  5. Dance, Girl, Dance played to a nearly sold out crowd this afternoon. The audience was enraptured by LB and there was excited chatter every time Bubbles was back on the screen.
  6. There has been a Lucy Big Screen drought in Toronto for many years, but it's pouring in the first quarter with a screening of Dance, Girl, Dance at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Saturday as part of a Dorothy Arzner retrospective, and no less than two separate screenings of Stage Door before March. The first is playing as part of the ongoing Designing the Movies film series which features guest speakers on costume and production design, and the second is again at TIFF as part of their Katharine Hepburn retrospective. Without Love is not part of the series, alas.

    Sitcom pioneer Mary Kay Stearns of "Mary Kay & Johnny" fame has died at 93 https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/08/obituaries/mary-kay-stearns-dead.html
  8. Would love to see this.
  9. They Love Lucy: Celebrity Lucy Fans

    I guess Bruce and Diane forgot to tell their daughter that Lucy Carmichael was a widow trying to get by. http://greginhollywood.com/laura-dern-on-change-in-lucille-ball-from-i-love-lucy-to-the-lucy-show-years-i-was-like-‘she-seems-sad-now’”-168571?fbclid=IwAR3XRmtVWi6JGE8RI2QkL819jmHy7cWxyDbFvoJAAzliLJUKDw83OFiAXKw
  10. Lucy's MAME is coming on Blu-Ray!!!

    The direction just seems clumsy and amateurish to me -- inexplicably so considering Saks' otherwise impeccable body of work as a director. One could put some of the blame on Onna White, but some of the blocking during a couple of numbers is just terrible, from the "It's a time for!" line up at the top of the stairs where Lucy's arms block out the face of a couple of chorus girls, while at one moment in "We Need a Little Christmas" Miss Ball has to zig zag around an awkwardly placed coffee table to take a step.
  11. I don't recall mine having a purple hue, but I'm tempted now to hook my VCR back up and find out. lol Regarding the picture quality, the BluRay case notes that the Lured restoration here is a combination of elements from the original 35mm nitrate prints as well as elements from 16mm prints. Curious!
