Lucy A - Z -- H!

Recommended Posts

May 28, 1936:


LA Evening Herald Express, Jimmy Starr: “No trips to Honolulu, or even a flyer to New York for Lucille Ball, pretty RKO actress. The studio is anxious to build her into a fashion plate of the screen, so she’ll spend the next two weeks in a hospital to gain 20 pounds, from 94, to reach 116 pounds. She will accomplish this in a ‘hideaway’ hospital for her rest and treatment, not even the Studio knows where she is,” published this date in 1936.

Howard Anderson Co -- they're listed in the credits of some of the LDCH episodes I've been watching under "Photographic Effects".


Thanks so much 'viv' for the 'heads-up' on this Company; they were involved in much Desilu 'business'.... The chronology thanks you, as well....Regards, JK
