Maureen O’Hara, Louis Hayward, and Lucille Ball
Anyone who knows me at all knows that two of my greatest obsessions are Lucille Ball and Maureen O’Hara (along with Ann-Margret, Rita Hayworth, and Katharine Hepburn… yes, more redheads!). How could I not be all about Dance, Girl, Dance (Amazon dvd link) – the 1940 film starring BOTH of these beautiful and incredibly talented ladies. The movie is fun, spirited, entertaining, and packed with personality and charisma – just like its lovely stars.
Another cool thing about Dance, Girl, Dance is that it was directed by Dorothy Arzner, one of the bold ground-breakers for females in film-making. She didn’t just open the door for other female directors, she flung it open. The lady was absolutely wonderful.
The film makes for a very entertaining afternoon or evening and the photo makes for my kind of picture of the day!
