I've been curious to see what the December schedule is but TCM has not posted it yet. I'm still hoping some of Lana's Universal flicks are included.

Hopefully we'll see some Universal films like PORTRAIT IN BLACK and MADAME X. 

 

Yes,  that would be great since Lana's MGM films are show fairly often.

This will be the third time for Lana (Jan 1998 and Oct 2001 being the other two).

 

While Lucy has been once,  in July 1998.   

 

Oh, well,  the voters have spoken.  :D

Barton just private messaged me and said Lana (and her millions of fans) won the contest. He's updated the title of the thread.

Wow, looking at the two together, you realize just how gorgeous Lucille Ball was. Lucille Ball was definitely the better performer too-in drama and comedies. 

I'd certainly vote for Lucy over Lana.....Lana holds zero fascination for me and most of her movies have been shown regularly on TCM, while many of Lucy's are very rarely shown.

This is an easy choice. 

 

LUCILLE BALL!! 

 

I really want them to replay Beauty For the Asking.  That was a really good film and it's not available on video.  I want to record it so that it can live on my DVR.

It will be interesting to see which one they choose. We should mention that Edward Buzzell directed Lucy in BEST FOOT FORWARD, which was originally a Lana Turner vehicle. Lucy stepped in when Lana became pregnant.
