I guess the occassion explains the odd assortment of folks gathered!! Can't name 'em all but it appears to be (l to r) Mr. ??;  Joan Blondell; Miss ?? (that isn't Eleanor Roosevelt by any chance, is it??); Cary Grant; Miss ??; Charles Boyer; Mr. Arnaz and kneeling, Oliver Hardy & Stan Laurel. :D

O M G so nice to see such a late picture of Mrs Arnaz.  And why does Jan Sullivan look so much like a Carole Cook clone?  Even her clothes.

Yes she definitely is.  Carole is classy, tells so many amusing stories, why the heck didn't SHE ever write a Lucy book or one just about herself.

Carole may not have written a book -- although that's one I'd love to read myself! -- but there IS a documentary about to come out about her & actor hubby Tom Troupe, produced and directed by the adorable and talented actor/artist Mason McCulley, who's also friends of the couple, about their lives and careers and I can't wait!!

Here's a description from the Facebook page about the doc:

 

Carole Cook, protege of Lucille Ball, and Tom Troupe, student of Uta Hagen and protege of Joseph Shidkraut, have each been in show business for over 50 years. Rubbing elbows with the likes of Ethel Merman, Rock Hudson and Clint Eastwood, they have appeared on Broadway, in films and on countless television shows over the past five decades. Their vast and colorful careers have thrived through the ebbs and flows of a fickle industry, yet it is in their devoted marriage that they find their starring roles.

 

Starring Carole Cook, Tom Troupe, Del Shores, Robert Osborne, Bruce Vilanch, David Galligan, Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey.

Now THAT's something I wanna see.  Amazing how many great documentaries are coming out on some of the REAL stars of show business.

Here's another Mason McCulley (busy boy!) project that Carole's been involved with, a web series called Break A Hip (!) with quite an impressive array of folks involved, including Oscar winner Octavia Spencer (The Help), Emmy winner Alison Janney (Mom; Masters & Johnson), Christina Pickles (St. Elsewhere) and a host of others. I haven't watched it yet but it looks hilarious....and with Carole appearing, how could it not be??
