Mondays Glamour

Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz

Movie Trivia

During the scenes of Nicky and Tacy pulling their trailer in the mountains, their 1953 Mercury Monterey convertible is replaced with a larger but similar appearing 1953 Lincoln Capri convertible. The distinct Lincoln grille is clearly evident in a shot as the car rounds a curve. The more powerful Lincoln (which is equipped with a 205 HP V8 engine) was needed to pull the heavy New Moon trailer up and over the steep grades of the Sierra Nevadas where the scenes were filmed.

I hope everyone survived shopping this weekend. Have a good day everyone!

    There is no glamor like vintage glamor.

    wow. hollywood used some common sense when making that movie. Its funny the things people will pull using cars that are completely unsuitable for the job these days. and then they wonder why the car's engine blows or the suspension gives up on them.

    Lucille Ball was a real beauty in her younger days. I love this picture of her.
