GEEZ, you see the difference color can make? I never in a million years would have thought her EMMY dress was that colorful!

 

Real colour, yes. :lucyhmm:

I thought it was especially funny that as i watched the Charm School episode at noon, that the characters are discussing the advent of color on tv shows. One even says it might be avaiable in a year or so, cracked me up as i know the show went on another seven years without it, wait, eight if you count season one of The Lucy Show.

Ok, about that freakin bathrobe, saw Viv wearing it today, yet we've seen Lucy and others constantly wearing it also, did they have only one that they used for everything or did they buy a gross of them and had everybody needing a bathrobe in a scene wearing that same tired old bathrobe?

Me either, Claude! I love this pink color on her :viv1: .

I'm guessing there was only one bathrobe. It was very broken in by the time Ann Margret wore it years later when Lucie & Desi Jr were teenagers!

Hollywood studios can only afford one frickin bathrobe for all those actors????? LOL! And yes, Viv looked incredible in that color, like i said on another thread, she really seemed to have great taste when it came to clothes. Of course the show restricted that taste sometimes.

Colorful, yes; it's "true" color, I don't think so: color film from back then tended to fade, the colors "turning", etc. -- look how "purplish" the dress is - I doubt that's what color it really was! :D

I watched the Mertz & Kurtz episode yesterday & when Ethel was all dressed up in the dinner scene, I thought her dress looked familiar.

Here is a link to a pic of the dress in that episode:

And here is a link to a pic of Viv & Desi, at probably some type of awards dinner:

Aha! Same dress :) .

Wow! Great find but I thought Viv hated all the clothes she wore on the show - and to then wear the same one for the Emmy?? Amazing though how much better it looks in colour.

Yeah, back in the days i used to buy the rag newspapers, i would notice spreads on Hollywood actreses for certain BIG events and one mag would show a lady in green and it would be blue in another rag and yet another color in another magazine, even depending on how far away the lady was in each picture, so if it affected photos, i'm sure film was even worse to control.

Wow that must have been some stale cereal! :lucyhaha:

No, that box was kept in the freezer at The Ricardos so it kept better, LOL! I stopped respecting the writers and the show a bit when i saw those damned cereal boxes filled the entire fridge in that episode.

I want ONE....if I can't have Ethel's hostess pants.

 

...and yet another of those famed ceramic cats (that moved over to the Mothers-In Law set!) from "Lucy and The French Movie Star"

That dress looks like it belongs in the women`s maternity section. You can have that cat, ugliest bibelot i`ve ever seen.

This photo of Gale and Eve from Our Miss Brooks is on eBay right now, and is it just me or was Eve's outfit featured in a Lucy episode sometime? It looks very familiar, but I can't place it. On first glance, I thought the top half may have originated on Ethel in Ricky's movie officer, but that's not it. Still, it seems very familiar.

Is that what Viv was wearing in that musical with Arthur Godfrey belting out her big number?

It looks like they had to let out and add a little bit of red frill for Gale between Lucy's Contact Lenses and Harrison Carter: Male Nurse. LOL

Those damned dishes on ILL, i always noticed them, they had flowers all over them, but then i saw a planter in the living room, on the fireplace and it was the same type of porcelain. Now last night, i saw a new one, on the kitchen wall, they had this new light with a shade but underneath it was this wall thing with another porcelain THING, maybe an urn of some kind, but made out of the exact same porcelain design as all those dishes, yet again.

They had to have a few hundred sets of that kitchen ware.
