LUCY'S MOVIE GUIDE
Lover Come Back (1946)
(featuring Lucille Ball as Kay Williams)
Lucille Ball stars as Kay Williams, the wife of a war correspondent, anxiously awaiting her husband's return. Kay is convinced that her husband (George Brent) is looking forward to feminine companionship after four long years at the front.
Imagine her surprise when it looks as though her husband wasn't quite as lonely as she'd thought, thanks to sexy combat photographer Vera Zorina. Kay files for divorce, but the outcome is tipped off by the title of the movie.
Special Notes: Lucille Ball has one delightful comic scene involving an attempt to smoke a cigar. The working title for this film was Lessons in Love. According to contemporary sources, when broadcast on television in 1953, the film was retitled Lucy Goes Wild to take advanatage of Lucille Ball's enormously successful television series, I Love Lucy. Modern sources indicate the film was retitled again as When Lovers Meet.
