ZIEGFELD FOLLIES (1945) on Blu, June 15

Recommended Posts

Contains the most bizarre segment of any Lucy movie.  Colorful and dazzling to watch and somehow she shines.  She doesn't embarrass herself which is saying a lot considering what she's given to do.   Let's see Mary Tyler Moore, Irene Ryan, Inger Stevens, Shirley Booth or Patty Duke (63-64 Emmy Best Actress in a Comedy nominees bypassing Miss Ball) pull this off!  This movie sat on the shelf for a couple of years for some reason.   By the time of its release MGM had pretty much given up on Lucy, despite appearing in two semi-hits "Dubarry" and "Best Foot Forward" and as movie-stealing support in "Without Love" and "Easy to Wed", all except "Love" in glorious technicolor.
