Vaudeville -- Before I Love Lucy, Lucy & Desi put together a vaudeville routine & took it on the road to see how the public would respond. Bill Frawley worked in vaudeville before acting in movies. (And how I would love to see old footage of some of that!)

Forget the banking! It's what happened IN the Model T when they got to the lake I'd love to hear about! :lucyhorror:

Model 'T' perhaps; not sure about the BANKER part....the only person I know, personally, to ask, I don't talk to; she's the Celoron 'gossip' - I'll ask around....

 

I grew up with Vinnie's son; who is passed for many years; the other son lives far away; don't see him anymore, younger by a .couple years than I am.

On this date, 6/14, in years mentioned:

1. LA Evening Herald Express - [reviews:] RKO' Five Came Back, previewed last night at the Westwood Village Theater, is gripping melodrama about plane passengers lost in a South American jungle. The title comes from the fact that only five get out alive - Lucille Ball is one of the stars. Despite the film’s weakness, it’s good entertainment,” [and]- “With all roles ably filled by Hollywood well knowns, including Lucille Ball, film emerges as a tense film drama based on what happens when a transport plane is forced down in the head-hunter territory of Central American jungles,” published this date in 1939.

2. TV Guide, the cover of which has 'loved Lucy' more times than any other magazine, publishes its first issue this date in 1948.

3. Forever Darling - Production begins, with a staff made up principally of Lucy employees, the last time Elois Jensson would design beautiful clothing for Lucille, this date in 1955.
