  9. Unfortunate Lucy Products (continued)

    I never heard of Debbie impersonating Lucy in her act. With the dark wig, could she be doing Lucy as Mame? Or perhaps the seller is just mistaken. The chorus boy facing the camera is Broadway stalwart Harvey Evans.
  10. Unfortunate Lucy Products (continued)

    Ok, I need to know more about this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DEBBIE-REYNOLDS-LEGGY-IMPERSONATING-LUCILLE-BALL-8X10-PHOTO-BB/153492949830?hash=item23bce48b46:g:4eAAAOSwUV1c3wVH
  11. New ‘Closer’ cover featuring L&D

    It's actually a nicely done, all-positive article, nothing "negative" or smarmy at all. Nice to see Kate about to pop!
  12. Tim Conway has died

    It’s impossible to watch Tim and not glean some sort of comedic knowledge from his performances. He entertained so many, but inspired so many as well. It’s interesting that two of his most famous bits- the “Dentist” sketch and the Elephant Story are so well-known. The Dentist was from season two of TCBS, and as we know, nothing from that era of the series saw the light of day until very recently. The Elephant Story is an outtake and I have no idea when it was first seen publicly. That’s why I think it’s so cool that Tim’s comedic genius kind of bypassed copyright laws because people just had to see this stuff.
  13. Tim Conway has died

    It was reported in court documents last year regarding his health care that he was non-communicative due to dementia. Rest in Peace, you comedy genius.
  14. Tim Conway has died

    "he suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and had no signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s." What do they mean? If he had no signs, why did they bring it up at all? “They used to do 33 shows a year on Burnett,” Did they??
  15. Tim Conway has died

    On an Instagram I follow they posted a photo with Tim, Betty White and Carl Reiner. Build a wall around Betty and Carl. This week has been rough and it's only Tuesday.

  19. Doris Day has died

    I love Doris' The Way We Were. What a loving person and great actress. Never saw her show so no comment
  20. Doris Day has died

    That is the most moving and WELL-ACTED rendition of "The Way We Were" I have ever heard. My thoughts on Doris: In 1964, she was movie's NUMBER ONE box office star. By 1968, she was an anachronism. 1968 is generally acknowledged as the year movies matured. By her own choice, Doris didn't keep up with those times. It's reported she turned down "The Graduate". Hard to imagine her in it. When it was announced that DORIS DAY would be coming to television, everyone expected greatness. In one article, circa 1966 or 1967 (nor sure) it was announced that Lucille Ball would retire in 1969 ("at the age of 59" adding a year to her age), but CBS had Doris Day under contract to ensure they would still have the #1 comedienne on television. Of course, neither of those things happened. "The Doris Day Show" was a huge disappointment and went through more format and cast changes than The Lucy Show (although that series is a strong #2). TDDS might have been better in front of an audience but I don't think Dodo ever appeared onstage in a play or musical. Success in a weekly situation comedy is not in the cards for every actor even if they seem sure-fire. Like Doris, Jimmy Stewart and Shirley MacLaine, to name 3. They can only elevate mundane material so far. That Doris could keep that middling pastiche TDDS, with nary an LOL moment, going for 5 years is a testament to her likability. Evidently Doris didn't need it all. She virtually retired after TDDS at the age of 51 (same age as Lucy when TLS began!). She could have written her own ticket with live performances but chose to live her life in relative seclusion in beautiful Carmel. She owned a hotel (and/or restaurant?) in Carmel. When her son ran it, she would make glad-handing appearances there. But when he died in 2004, she quit doing that. Disappointed by the men she chose, Doris took solace with her many dogs. I hope she was happy. I hope that Doris knew and was warmed by how much we loved and admired her.
  21. Doris Day has died

    A couple of months ago I made a donation to the Animal Foundation, and knowing that Doris read all of her fan mail meant I had to include a letter. Her response is one of my most prized possessions, and I highly recommend honoring her life by making a contribution.
