Lucille Ball, bride of Frankenstein

Is it just us, or is Lucille Ball giving strong Bride of Frankenstein vibes in this photo from 1945? The piled-up hair, the shoulder pads, the camera angle and those crazy painted-on eyebrows all conspire to give Lucy a creepy glow. This was less than a decade before Lucille Ball began playing her signature lying and scheming dolt in I Love Lucy (1951-57). Back in the 1930s and 1940s she was more of a straight actress, before she discovered the "gift" of physical "comedy" that made her America's "beloved" Lucy. To be clear, we're not saying that Lucille Ball ever actually played the Bride of Frankenstein. Just that she could have.
