Vintage Starlet of the Day



Lucille Ball. I remember watching Stage Door with my sister and thinking "that dosen't look like the same Lucy from the I Love Lucy Show!" She was just so much more glamorous and gorgeous! Lucy grew up in New York in the 1920's and attended dramatic school with Bette Davis. Apparently Bette got all the attention and Lucy was constantly sent home and told she was too shy. Strange to think that now. Lucy did some modeling and soon started getting movie roles in the 1930's. Did you know Lucy and Ginger Rogers were best friends until Lucy's death in 1989? I guess cute redheads stick together:)
I posted my favorite Lucy photos above. Isn't she stunning?

I love Lucy (excuse the pun) and had never seen this glamorous side of her. I was going to get a book about her from the library today but they were all out :(

Stage Door was just on the other night and her whole Seattle schtick had me grinning. I can really watch that movie repeatedly.
