Icons of Hollywood Pop-Culture: Tributes to "The Rat Pack" and "I Love Lucy". "I Love Lucy" dominated the television ratings between 1951 and 1957, starring Lucille Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz. In 1952, in an episode called "Job Switching" Lucy and Ethel decided they would go to work instead of their husbands and landed at a chocolate factory. Lucy dipping chocolates to great hilarity was voted #2 of TV Guide's 100 Most Memorable Moments. Here a limited edition tribute with a re-strike image from the episode and the significance of the episode is beautifully matted and framed to 19 x 14". In the 1960s, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop were collectively known as The Rat Pack, thanks to a nicely lobbed ribbing by Lauren Bacall calling them that name. The reputation of these 5 Vegas Entertainers really came into the fore with the release of the film OCEANS 11 in 1960. Offered is a fine limited edition tribute to these entertainers in this re-strike photo taken in front of The Sands marquee of all five, one of the most famous taken of the group. Photo is matted in a colorful pattern of dice and cards. 22 x 14". Estimate Value $100 - UP
