Dear Fellow Lucyfans:

Jamestown Photos

My thanks to Ric Wyman, Executive Director of the Lucy-Desi Center in Jamestown, NY, for sharing with us a few of the photos he snapped at this year's "Lucy-Desi Days" Festival.

A couple of fans were also generous to send pictures, and I have posted just a few of them in the "Lucy Places to Visit" portion of this website. You can find the photos here:

Lucie to Warble at Birdland

Lucie Arnaz, who gave a special concert last summer on her birthday (July 17) at New York's Birdland nightspot, will return there this year as a special guest of her longtime accompaniest, musician Ron Able.

Able will be performing at Birdland July 16 and 17th, and will be joined also by special guest Valarie Pettiford.

Dann "Returns" to Havana

For the past few years, Dann Cahn, the original film editor on I Love Lucy -- and later a director of various films and television programs -- has been writing his memoirs... No, he has not put them in a book. Rather, he's been writing articles for trade journals and magazines -- and making them available to the public as self-published booklets.

In celebration of the approaching 50th anniversary of "Lucy Takes a Cruise to Havana," the first of the "Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show" specials, Dann has dusted off "The Cuban Caper," an article he wrote a couple of years ago -- and is making it available again with a new 50th Anniversary color cover. In the article, Dann tells of his adventures directing location shooting for the special down in Havana... Included are photos and informal snapshots from Dann's personal collection.

Dann sold copies of the booklet at the Lucy-Desi Festival in Jamestown, NY, over Memorial Day -- but also wants to make them available (at least for the next few weeks) to readers of this web site. The spiral-bound booklets are priced at $12 each (including postage and handling), and can be purchased from Dann directly.

Send check or money order to:

Mr. Dann Cahn
The Cuban Caper
PO Box 49824
Los Angeles, CA 90049

If you want the booklet(s) inscribed, please enclose a note indicating to whom he should sign the inscription(s).

Have a great week everybody!
