Description by OLDIES.com:
Miss Grant Takes Richmond (1949, Not Rated, B&W): Dick Richmond is a sharp bookmaker whose unproductive real estate office is a cover for his gambling operation. Unaware of his real line of work, eager but incompetent Ellen Grant signs on as Dick's secretary and presses him into a building project to ease the post-war housing shortage. Dick siphons the cash from unsuspecting homebuyers to pay his debts to a big-time syndicate, leaving his ditzy secretary charged with embezzlement. Now, Dick must choose between the easy, grifting lifestyle or saving his secretary's hide! Stars Lucille Ball, William Holden.
The Fuller Brush Girl (1950, Not Rated, B&W): Faced with the reality that their dream home is just out of reach, young lovers Humphrey and Sally Elliot decide that her opportunity lies in door-to-door cosmetics sales. But when the bumbling Sally stumbles upon a murder in progress, she becomes the number one suspect. In fleeing the police, Sally and Humphrey attempt to track down the real killers and find themselves in one comic mix-up after another. Stars Lucille Ball, Eddie Albert.
The Magic Carpet (1951, Not Rated, Color): In the post-war years, Arabian fantasies were incredibly popular: Here, cast as a villainess, Lucille Ball is Narah, the daughter of Ali, pretender to the throne and royal assassin. The true heir, played by John Agar, smuggled away on a magic carpet when just a baby, grows up under an assumed name until he is old enough to claim his place alongside his beautiful love, Lida. Stars Lucille Ball, John Agar.
