Woohoo Edie picture. That last photo is a hum dinger. 

Edie did NOT look like Lucy IMO... but she was a pretty lady.

I have no idea what stupid news reporter first put that in an article and then all the others seem to keep quoting it. Yeah they had red hair but not even close in looks.

These photos were apparently acquired through the estate of Pepito Perez. Likely taken down in Mexico in July 1968, and the person pictured with Desi is unknown.

Publicity shot from Desi's 1959 appearance in "So Tender, So Profane" on Desilu Playhouse. (Would love to see that episode!)

2 of Desi's Playhouse episodes came up on ebay a few years back briefly, along with many others. Sadly they ended up getting pulled. I'd love to see them too. I only have the Christmas one and KO Kitty. And Kitty is looking pretty terrible.

The above photo is Desi with Charlie Cinnomon, a press agent who helped orchestrate the 1976 opening of Miami Beach Theater of Performing Arts. Lucy and Desi came out for this event since Lucie Arnaz was starring in the theater's inaugural production, Jerry Herman's 'Mack and Mabel.' Here's a more well-known photo from that night:

To me, he looks like a young Desi Jr here - even more so than usual.

Isn't it crazy though at times how much alike they look?

For a lady who carried Desi’s picture around in her pocket while she was pregnant, Lucy certainly got her wish: kids that look just like him!
