All three sign the front of an un-mailed USO envelope.
Envelope signed: "Lucille/Ball", "Arthur Lake", "Ray Bolger", 6x3½. Un-mailed USO envelope with USO flag printed on verso. Show business veteran LUCILLE BALL (1911-1989) appeared in the chorus of Broadway productions before breaking into films in the 1930s. Roles in such films as Stage Door and DuBarry Was a Lady made her a popular star, but Lucy did not become an American institution until I Love Lucy debuted on the small screen in 1951. Adapted from her radio show, My Favorite Husband, I Love Lucy co-starred her husband, Desi Arnaz. Lucy's portrayal of scatter-brained housewife Lucy Ricardo helped define the sitcom genre and earned her two Emmy Awards during the show's six-year run. She continued to bring laughter to her legions of fans in The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy until her retirement in 1974. RAY BOLGER (1904-1987) began his dancing career on vaudeville and then moved to Broadway in 1930's musicals such as On Your Toes. His best-remembered stage role was a starring one in Where's Charley (1948), a role he reprised in the film version (1952). Bolger will always be remembered and loved as the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz (1939). After hosting his own TV variety show in the early 1950s, he was a frequent and popular guest on TV shows through the 1970s. ARTHUR LAKE (1905-1987) was a child actor whose adult career was set in 1938 when he portrayed Chic Young's cartoon character Dagwood opposite Penny Singleton's Blondie in the first of 28 films featuring the fictional family through 1950, with a brief TV series in 1954. In the movie, quite opposite the comic strip, Blondie had the family brains. Unevenly toned. Fine condition.
