Difficult to work with?[edit]

Is that not bit about the actress being difficult to work with a POV? Should it not have a citation?

Does anyone know how I can reach Lucille Bliss? She was my manager when I was dancing in the San Francisco Bay area in the late 50's. I was also on the Ben Alexander Show of which she was the Talent Co-ordinator. I last saw Lucille in Fullerton,California around 1985, at which time She and I ran erands together and she took me to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for an Awards presentation. I was priviledged to meet Walter Lantz, Mr. Barbera and several others great Lucille workd with/for. I am now living in Washington state and would love to get in touch with Lucille. Thank you for any help you can give me. Natasha Lofft e-mail: lofftxdancer@yahoo.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.118.62.146 (talk) 06:00, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Dragon's Lair (cartoon)[edit]

For quite a while now the Dragon's Lair Wikipedia article has stated that Lucille Bliss portrayed Princess Daphne in the Dragon's Lair video game. I don't know where this bit of information originally came from. I recently found this to be untrue as the voice-over credits actually belong to one Vera Lanpher (video game only). After inquiring on the Dragon's Lair discussion page, someone responded that Lucille Bliss portrayed Daphne (cartoon series only.) This Wiki editor did not provide a source and I couldn't find any sources to verify this information so I left Lucille Bliss in the article but I added "citation needed" on the Dragon's Lair article. I also added it to the Lucille Bliss page, as I felt it better to have this information than for the credits to be lost, but someone has reversed my entry and stated it to be incorrect. I probably shouldn't have added it without verifying, but I felt it better to have it than for this information to be gone and lost forever. If Lucille Bliss has truly done some voice-over work as Princess Daphne I wouldn't want Lucille to lose credit for her work. Does anyone here know for certain that Lucille Bliss has or has not ever done any work on Dragon's Lair? If she has, do you have any references? Like I said, the Dragon's Lair page has previously given her credit for what I believe to be a long time. If I can't find a source very soon I'm going to be erasing her credits on the Dragon's Lair Wiki article. Currently the IMDB for Dragon's Lair (cartoon) credits one Ellen Gerstell as Princess Daphne (for unknown episodes). Thank you. --Rrand (talk) 03:46, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • For a long time (and until as recently as 2007, at least), the IMDb listed Bliss as the voice of Daphne in the arcade video game, but as you know this was incorrect. As best I can tell, that propagated this misinformation to places like Wikipedia. I can't say for sure that she never voiced Daphne elsewhere, but the 1991 edition of The Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons by Jeff Lenburg makes no mention of her in the "Dragon's Lair" cartoon series entry, mentioning only Eleen Gerstell. So I can't prove she didn't, but in what digging into it I've done, I've found nothing to prove she did. --Lkseitz (talk) 21:20, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Lucille Bliss Birthdate[edit]

I have monitored this article for years and for all of that time, it has said that Lucille Bliss was born on March 31, 1916. Recently, it was changed to March 31, 1929. Why? Is there any proof? -Mallen22 (talk) 17:37, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

  • While the IMDB gives the 1916 date, the link in the reference says 1929. Logically, given she was awarded a Young Artist Award, which is for performers under 21, for her work on Cinderella, a 1950 film, the 1929 date makes more sense. Using 1929, she would have been 20 when the movie was released, but using 1916 she would have been 33, making her ineligible for the award. Misinformation has a way of propagating once it's created, so I'd guess that's what happened here.
To further back this up, I just found a quote in How to Be Like Walt: Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life where Ms. Bliss says "I was just a teenager when I got the part." However, I also watched the beginning of the video interview in the External links and yes, she does say 1916 there, so I agree it's puzzling, but the 1929 date still seems to fit the facts better. --Lkseitz (talk) 19:21, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Lucille Bliss's death[edit]

Her passing on November 8 was reported in this November 10 article by animation historian Jerry Beck on Cartoon Brew, an animation news/blog site co-owned by Jerry. I don't know whether or not Cartoon Brew fits Wikipedia's definition of a reliable source, but it seems be a major news site among animation folks. —{|Retro00064|☎talk|✍contribs|} 08:12, 11 November 2012 (UTC).

that is not a reliable source because it is a blog try finding a news article. Redsky89 (talk) 18:14, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
