Loving Lucy: Miss Grant Takes Richmond

I was going to write a lengthy post about my love for Lucy’s film Miss Grant Takes Richmond with William Holden, but as many of you know my internet connection has been non-existent for a few weeks now and my internetting has been limited to a few minutes every morning sitting on a bench in the freezing cold.

If you click the link on the title above you can read a review I wrote of the film for YAM Magazine. I wish I could have written more on the film, but I will say it is definitely worth your time if you can find it. The two of them are fantastic together. The ending is particularly fantastic. I wish I could have found a video of it to share with you.

  1. Wasn’t she adorable! Look at those photos. What a talent! What a business woman! She produced Star Trek! Love her always.

  2. I really need to see this film- does it ever get better than Lucy and Bill Holden? 🙂

  3. Enjoyed your YAM review – while I don’t think MISS GRANT TAKES RICHMOND is the best film Lucy did, her performance is marvelous – she creates a warm, funny, and giving character; you get a great sense of her humanity here. I love her in the scenes when she handles the crowds of people eager for housing. It’s really HER film.

  4. Thanks for the warm Lucy post, and thanks for participating in the blogathon. Cheers!

  5. Just wanted to stop by and offer my thanks, too, for your participation in the Lucy blogathon. I really enjoyed your YAM article on this film! I hope you’re able to get regular internet access again soon!
