A photograph inscribed by Lucille Ball to Milton Berle
Large black and white photograph, displayed in a painted wood frame, of Milton Berle's appearance on The Lucy Show in 1965. In this episode, entitled "Lucy Saves Milton Berle," Berle masquerades as a bum as research for a movie role and Lucy meets him at a soup kitchen and drags him home with her. She has inscribed the photo, "Milton / Don't forget-- / It could have / been "Berlilu" / Love / Lucy." Berle and Ball were longtime friends, having first met (and allegedly dated briefly) in the 1930s.
Overall: 15 1/2 x 12 1/2 in.
