    eta I don't know who Clint Howard is (one of the Stooges?) but to me it looks like Burt Lancaster.
    While I think it is a terrible likeness of Lucille Ball, I am totally transfixed by its awfulness. If I were traveling through the area, I would definitely go out of my way to gets some shots of me with the statue. It reminds me of how that woman who "touched up" that old painting of Jesus. At first, people were horrified, but now she has turned her town into a tourist magnet: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/15/wo...ored.html?_r=0

    Also, here is a picture of Clint Howard (his famous-director brother Ron always managed to give him a bit part in one of his major films):

    Clint Howard is quite well known to Trekkies, and to Ramones fans for his fairly big part in Rock n Roll High School.

    Clint will always be The Ice Cream Man to me. It's a cheesy B rated horror movie which I love.

    Statue Lucy is a double-Doppelganger of Burt and Adam.. hahaha.

    Clint Howard would have to be one of the most employed, unknown by name, actors in movies .. i've seen him in so many projects. .. i didn't realize he was so hairy on his chest.. holy crap!

    But i just don't think i could go there.. he is an interesting dude.. but just a bit too creepy looking even for my oddball taste

    i love Lucy's gorgeous red hair and her beautiful blue eyes.. she was stunning.
