Movieland- The Lucy Show

A very simple display of Lucille Ball stands unassumingly off in a corner. I suppose the figure itself is the main focus of this set. It would have to be. Lucy was born in 1911 and died in 1989. She is definitely considered one of the greatest female comics of all time. Her career spanned decades and this redhead became the top draw on television. This figure honors the contribution she made to the fields of television and comedy.

A close up of the wonderfully sculpted Lucy figure. It looks as though she is ready to spend a night on the town, as she has her pocket book along to pay for all of it. Don't tell Ricky. Actually, the figure is supposed to represent her later series, The Lucy Show which ran from 1962-68.

A fairly dark picture of the clapboard sign shows information about when this three dimensional representation is supposed to take place. The Lucy figure was not sold at the auction, but the small set sold for $300.
