LUCILLE BALL (1942) Glamour portrait


[Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1942]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin photo. Near fine.

After rising from showgirl to bit player to leading lady in B-films to star at RKO, Lucille Ball left in 1942 and came to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Though MGM featured her and her spectacular looks in a few musicals, they were not sure what to do with her so she moved on just a few years later.

While at MGM she posed for a plethora of fantastic portraits, including this one. Though there is no blurb nor photographer’s stamp, this is likely the work of Clarence Bull.
