The New Favourite Lucy Photos Thread !

Recommended Posts

The photo, taken on April 7, 1953 at Winchell's birthday party was held at the famed Sunset Strip nightclub, Ciro's. The exact lineup, from back row, left to right is: 20th Century Fox mogul, Darryl F. Zanuck, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, Walter Winchell and Jane Russell. Front row is of course Lucy, famed songwriter Jimmy McHugh and the ever-lovely (not) Louella Parsons.

I'm surprised Lucy went, this was right after the Commie report that Walter did on her. Thanks for ID'ing the other two men, i never would have guessed either, I'm with whoever said the one on the left looked like one of the Warner brothers. Ric, those carricatures of Lucy are just stunning on the bottom of your posts.

If this pic is from April 1953 then it's actually about 5 months before Winchell's infamous blind item. I, too, would be surprised if Lucy went after Winchell branded her a commie!

Oh, yes, sorry, you're right, i mixed up the date with the birth of the baby i guess. I think Lucy gave in when Desi hired him to narrate on The Untouchables but i would doubt she'd ever forgive him for reporting that blind item in the first place. But deep down, she knew how powerful he was at that time and that he certainly could not ignore such a story.

Walter Winchell also did the narration for The Lucy Show episode "Lucy the Gun Moll."

Well yeah, but she was probably over it by then and his career was in the toilet and she probably just felt sorry for him. Besides, his voice was needed to make the whole episode authentic as it was a tribute to The Untouchables, LOL!

Geez, where are you people finding these rare images of her, most of them i have never seen before, or at least have forgotten. That second shot looks like an audition one for Mame or Lillian Russell, although it's from the thirties, LOL! And the last one looks like one she might have made it herself, all she's missing is the Little Orphan Annie hair.

A treasure trove![/url]

 

 

This shot is actually Barbara Pepper...even though she does look like Lucy here. I have several shots from "Roman Scandals" and unfortunately, the internet always misidentifies it. (Still, very cool though to see how pretty BP was at that time!)

Wow! That looks SO much like Lucille Ball! Can you imagine I Love Lucy with Barbara Pepper and Gale Gordon!?

Now, here's a comparison you don't see every day! From 1934 to 1974...40 years later and the lady could STILL be a gorgeous showgirl!

Wow, amazing! :)

 

At the time, I wonder if she remembered having been done up in a similiar outfit??

 

Cool find, Rick! Keep 'em coming! :D

I debated posting the Roman Scandals shot because I wasn't 100% it was Lucy. I finally talked myself into it. I never would have guessed it was Barbara Pepper!

 

When I first saw that other photo, I immediately thought of Mame. I'm so glad you did that comparison, Rick. It's wonderful!

Lucy with Mel Bushman Alan King and some other people. Who are they? The blond looks mildly like Simone Signoret with a different nose. (It looks like Nancy Reagan is photobombing in the background but I think it is just a look-a-like. LOL)

The blonde on the right was one of the most hilarious and amazing writer/talk show host and personalities of the 50's-70's, the one and only Virgina Graham. Next to her is her husband, Harry.

 

For those that do not know who Virgina was...here's a link or two (to see and hear her in action!):

Thanks Ric, I've always wanted to know who she was, and she seemed extraordinary and that blooper clip just makes me burst into laughs Here's a pic I bought of the two of them a long time ago not knowing who she was, but certainly glad I know now :)

I can't believe you guys didnt even know who Virginia was, she had that daytime talk show, Lucy was on it many times, Virginia was Lucy's type of gal, she was even one of the few celebrities at Lucie's wedding to Phil.

Great candid shot, Virg had that same hairstyle for like fifty years. I'll betcha more oil went in there than the BP oil spill.
