Wow! Incredible shot. 

Wow.....just WOW! Stellar....stunning...romantic and of course, just plain beautiful.  Palm Springs I'd venture to guess...is there definitive info on it's origin/location? Ever curious... Thanks for sharing, this is truly amazing.  :peachonthebeach:

I only have 1954. :( 

No worries, love; hoping all is well with you and yours; hi to Mom from me; I am in between 3-count 'em 60+ year friends passing within a very short period of time; but, all 3 WAKES within a 4-day period.  To say I'm down in the dumps is accurate; and,, it's nice to 'talk' to someone alive I consider a friend.

Don’t recall having seen this shot before - it’s supposedly Lucy and Desi from the opening night of Wildcat. I say ‘supposedly’ because I would expect to see Desi’s hair more grey at this point but perhaps there’s an explanation. If that’s the case, this is a rare candid of them during a time when they were said to have been considering reconciliation. According to one article from the time, one photographer asked to take their picture when they were out having a quiet dinner but Lucy declined.

P.S. Also rare to see Lucy without nail polish on. Perhaps due to the character she was playing?

You are good. Based on the hair pattern it isn't Desi. There are photos of him at opening to compare and yes more gray and short. Also i love that photo thing you mentioned. I put that article over in random quotes.

And you are correct on nailpolish. It would not be era/character correct.

Okay thanks.  Did some googling and found a few photos from the premiere,  and I know I’ve seen the second one below before. You are right - the above photo is definitely not Desi,  but it was clearly from the same night.

I think there is one more from opening night I found but Lucy isn't in it. Good comparing. That first often gets mislabeled wrong. Now who that guy is, I have no idea.

I have a clipping about the bottom photo screen test. It says that they were both talking off in a corner so someone swung the boom mic over them and apparently the conversation was pretty steamy.
