Lucille Ball in “The Fuller Brush Girl” Kicks Off “Funny Ladies Film Series” Thursday, August 4th


Albright Memorial Library kicks off its Funny Ladies Film Series with a screening of the hilarious 1950 comedy The Fuller Brush Girl, starring Lucille Ball and Eddie Albert, on Thursday, August 4th at 7:00 PM in the Community Room (basement of Lackawanna County Children’s Library).

Scatterbrained Sally Elliott (Lucille Ball) gets a job as a Fuller Brush girl and, as expected, her attempts at selling cosmetics door-to-door are disastrous. Things get worse when one of her customers is murdered and she becomes the prime suspect. She and her poor fiancé Humphrey (Eddie Albert) find themselves dodging the police while trying to catch the real killer.

The film will be preceded by a selection of classic Looney Tunes cartoons starting at 6:30 PM.

Refreshments will be provided by The Friends of Scranton Public Library.

All screenings in the Funny Ladies Film Series are free with your library card, but seating is limited and registration is strongly suggested.
