    Here's another great coffee table book I picked up at Salvation this morning. I originally saw it last Summer in the showcase at Goodwill but when I went back for it it was gone. So happy to get this..Yes, I Love Lucy ! It's in very good condition except for a green marker slash across the top of the pages. They always have to deface books for some reason so they can't be sold as new. Interesting to see the costume jewelry, clothes, and read about the details of each movies production. She was so much more than zany Lucy Ricardo ! I'm going to make a goal of trying to watch some of the eighty movies in this book provided I can find them. -Mike-

    Back Cover
    Synopsis by Lucie Arnaz

    The world knows her as the First Lady of Television, but Lucille Ball’s talent also shone brightly on the cinema screen in over eighty films spanning five decades, most from Hollywood’s glamorous golden age of the 1930s and ’40s. Lucy at the Movies is a long overdue showcase for this area of the star’s career, offering behind-the-scenes stories and essential information for every film in which she appeared. The pages are filled with rare photos of the beautiful young actress, many from her own first scrapbooks. Explored from her days as a showgirl through blonde, brunette, and “Tango Red” incarnations, from black-and-white through glorious Technicolor, this is a complete reference guide and a tribute to a star and an era. “Lucy at the Movies was an enormous undertaking. But it’s clear that it was also a labor of love. My mother would be very impressed and flattered . . . The value in this encyclopedia is the information on, not only the film career of Lucille Ball, but the way films were made. It’s an invaluable history of the motion picture industry and those who first created it.”--Lucie Arnaz

    2. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Isn't that truth Caper..there's nothing like old Hollywood !
    3. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      What was her natural hair colour ? Have wondered. In the 50's our family would never miss an episode of I Love Loosely (Oops!) Lucy. Actually never even thought of her in movies !
    4. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Well Blunder she admitted to "mousy" brown on the episode of "I Love Lucy" where she bets Ricky she could tell the truth no matter what...lol
    5. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Lucy in "mousy brown" would ruin her whole image for our era/error !! Mike, you really need to learn when to lie !! LOL !!

      Hi Mike, you lucky dog. (yep except for the defacing). One of my GWF (good work friends) loves Lucy and she is opening a cake shop. She's got it covered but I would love to give here something like this. Dang..good find.
      I'm going googling. LOL

      Thanks OGF :) I'm sure you'll find a copy..I got this one for an amazing three dollars !

      I love her too but looking at the book I am really loving the fashion and jewellery!

      What a fantastic book Mike! I grew up watching "I love Lucy" and all the spin-offs. My all-time favorite comedienne! Thanks for sharing!

      GEEZ, I 'd like to put a green marker slash across their stupid foreheads! Nothing can be sold as "new" in a SECOND HAND shop unless it's specifically advertised as being NEW...dummies.

      And yes, I do love Lucy!
    14. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Thanks Rick....She's still on Dish Networks "Hallmark" channel here 5 days a week and FETV ran the "Lucy Show" with her real kids for a while. :)
    15. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      I know Bonnie and it's in nice condition otherwise. Just the top a 1" slash of green across the closed pages. Remember when they would cut the corner off or take a nip out of an LP's jacket in the bargain bin or when they went on sale. That would drive me equally crazy ! :)
    16. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      WOW ! Guess I forgot to vote !
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      I'll drink to that McDad ! And she made loads of mon-ie ! Oui ?
