    Stone Pillow
    The ads for The Stone Pillow tended to suggest that this TV movie was Lucille Ball's dramatic debut--completely ignoring the fact that Ball had started out as a "straight" actress in the 1930s who only occasionally played comedy until I Love Lucy came along. Whatever the case, the Ball we see in Stone Pillow is a cranky bag lady, fiercely independent and violently resistant to do-gooders who try to alter her homeless status. Daphne Zuniga plays an idealistic social worker who tries to get Ball off the streets. It is only after watching several of her fellow indigents die where they sleep that Ball agrees to give up her "stone pillow." Though meant to be intensely dramatic, The Stone Pillow looks more like an elongated I Love Lucy sketch in which Ball dresses up like a tramp in order to meet Red Skelton (or somebody). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      the stone pillow


      I felt like this film was one of Lucy's best dramatic performances. I think most people thought that she was just for comedy, but Lucy was able to handle anything that was given to her. I have followed her acting career as long as I can remember, since I was a small child and have enjoyed everything that I have seen her perform in. She has truly been missed over the years and we all tremendously thank her for the wonderful entertainment that she gave to us all. Please, if you get the this movie and let everyone know that Lucy gave us so much more. Thank you.

      One of Lucy's last films.


      It's a made for TV movie, and it shows it, but Lucy is a class act all the way. This film is a inside look at the homeless life in the city, but there's more to it in the real world.
