Does anybody have any footage of "The Loving Lucy" festivals? Mary Jane was honored at one of them, and I'd love to see it!

Some footage could previously be found on Tom's site (http://www.lucyfan.c...vhighlites.html) but the last time I tried, the links wouldn't work; still, it's a great reference site, replete with fans as well as "stories from the stars", rare photos, etc. Check it out!

Your best bet however may be Stuart Shostak, as he was the videographer for all the events and while I can't promise/don't know offhand, perhaps his site (http://www.stusshow.com/) offers some of these old interviews, etc. If not..... he should! ;)

Good luck!

Do you know what year it was. I have 97 and 99 but don't remember a tribute those years. Ralph in 97' read a wonderful letter about TV mom Viv though.

Honestly, I don't recall, it's been too long and they sort of all "run together"! If you poke around on that site, you may find what you're looking for, I don't know... I do remember another "super fan" used to have part of his website devoted to the conventions but I don't know if it's still up and running/accessible or not but you could try glencharlow.com ....

Plus, there are a couple of "attendees" on this board whom could probably answer your questions right off the top of their heads: "tjw" = Tom Watson, who led the charge, ably assisted by "rickee" aka Rick Carl.

Patrick Ziegler (what a doll!) also was not only a superfan but super close to Miss Croft later in life, I'm sure he could share with you but I don't know whether he frequents this board or not and while I've met him I don't have any contact info, so I wouldn't be much help there.

Good luck! :D

There are two photos up on eBay right now claiming to be Mary Jane Croft. They look vaguely like her but the facial features look too rounded, and the eyes too far apart, to be Mary Jane, IMO. Thoughts?

I don't think they look a bit like her but then who has ever seen Mary Jane younger than 35 or so?  The first picture actually looks a teeny bit like a young Lucy.

On my lunch break today I was watching an episode of Hazel featuring Cathy Lewis, first wife, of course, of Elliott Lewis and it made me wonder: what do we know about Mary Jane's first husband, Jack? What was his deal and what happened to him?
