LUCY'S MOVIE GUIDE
(featuring Lucille Ball as Fashion Model)
Irene Dunne plays a deposed White Russian princess who has become a famed Parisian couturier.
Dunne is the partner of "Roberta" (Helen Westley), who passes away, leaving her half of the business to American football player Randolph Scott, who of course knows next to nothing about the gown business, and couldn't care less anyway.
Special Notes: Keep an eye out for a blond Lucille Ball as a fashion model. Alice Duer Miller's novel "Gowns by Roberta" was adapted into the 1933 Broadway musical Roberta, with music by Jerome Kern and Otto Harbach. The 1935 filmization of Roberta was slightly adapted to accommodate the dancing talents of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, though their roles are secondary to the characters portrayed by Irene Dunne and Randolph Scott.
