Welcome to Film Fashion Friday, Actress Month!! As you can see, Lucille Ball won the poll and will be featured for the next three weeks. Just as a side note, I will be doing some of the other actresses as the year goes on, so if you have a favorite, leave a comment.
The main film this week is Lured (1947). This is one of my favorite Lucy films...it is soooooo good!! Lucy plays a temporary undercover for the police to try and catch a serial killer that's on the loose. George Sanders plays her love interest; I just love him!! This film is super enjoyable to watch, especially if you love mysteries.
The costumes were designed by Eloise Jensson. Jensson worked with Lucy a lot and contributed to several of the I Love Lucy episodes. She also made the gowns for Forever Darling (1956) -- which you should also check out, as it will not be included in the featured films for the coming weeks, but is a really great Lucy and Desi collaboration.
The honorable mention this week features Lucy in a small, but notable role in Without Love (1945). When I first saw this film, I immediately fell in love with the clutch bag Lucy carries throughout the film. I am still on a quest to find one like it!
This film is apart of THIS Katharine Hepburn: 100th Anniversary collection; which is so worth buying considering it has Sylvia Scarlett (1935) on it, another must see film!! Lured is on DVD and Netflix. You can also get just Without Love from Netflix.
Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for next week's selections!!
