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!

I’ve seen the series of photos from this event, but not this particular shot.

#captionthis :D

I posted a bunch more over in the Lucy Desi photo thread.

Is it just me or does Desi's expression indicate a bit of disdain (or should I say disbelief)? Oh, so many "thought bubbles" come to mind to caption this! ("What did Loocee see in this tool??" :HALKING: )

Dumb me I just noticed the actual caption on the picture, which actually succinctly says it all! Still....the expression on DA's face is priceless! :HALKING:

Lucy and Edie at Roxbury with grandson Simon.  I think this may be the same time that the famous video with Lucy and Desi in the pool with Simon was made. Simon's size I think is the key comparison for that.

Thanks to @ilovelucy_scenes on Instagram for the photos.

Desi II, Ebba Sedgwick, Desi III, Lolita, Cleo, and DeDe in back

 

Great photo! This is one of those rare times where I can see Cleo’s resemblance to Lucy.

Was this from one of the Desilu picnics?
