Lucy Places to Visit:
Universal Studios Hollywood
Among the many delights you will see at Universal are:
A simulation of Lucy's favorite spot-- a corner of her lanai in which she placed her backgammon table. Photos of family and friends filled the walls, and the window looked out onto her spacious backyard. She spent hours in that corner chair every day.
The actual costumes that Lucy wore in various productions throughout her career. Pictured here are the blue hat and baggy tuxedo that she wore in the Arnazes' vaudeville tour and in the I Love Lucy pilot (the "Risky Riskerdo" sketch); and the red velvet pajama outfit she wore in the motion picture "Mame."
Many of Lucy and Desi's personal items -- including the drums that Desi Sr. and Jr. played -- and the various awards won by Lucy through the years.
A representative sample of the Lucy-related dolls and other merchandise that were released during Lucy's lifetime.
And, of course, Lucy impressionist Suzanne LaRusch is often on hand to greet and entertain visitors. (She is seen here with fan Susan Brock from Kentucky.)
What a treasure trove!
