Our pal Fibber (Howard Decker) sends along two pictures as mystery photos. Thanks!
[Congratulations to Lorenzo for identifying Season Hubley!]
They show Desi Arnaz Jr. and Season Hubley cavorting in the fountain in front of the Century Plaza Hotel for the 1973 TV movie “She Lives.” The plot is simple, it’s the plot idea behind “Love Story” but she lives, rather than dies.
I was photographing a Hollywood event in the hotel one evening when I noticed some movie shooting going on outside. The two of them rode up on bicycles (I can’t remember if they were on a bicycle-built-for-two or separate bikes) ditched the bikes and jumped into the fountain. Part of a big romance going on in the film….
