Just got the new book Furious Love about the tempestuous Taylor/Burton marriage! I immediately looked up "Ball" and yep...there's a page or two about Burton and Lucy. He was actually sober for the filming. More on this later... :P

They were showing "Blood Alley" on TCM today and Ben Mankiewicz mentioned that John Wayne promoted the film when he made his guest appearance on "I Love Lucy". B)

LOL! Yeah, i laughed out loud the couple of times i saw this turkey was playing on TCM and i remembered him pushing that crap on ILL. I have NEVER liked any John Wayne movie, he's always just playing himself. Actually ir was a hoot seeing him on ILL as he finally was playing someone likeable and he handled the comedy very well. And then, when i found out what a BIG Lucy fan he was, i finally looked at some of his better crap, like the great movies with Maureen O'hara and a few others including his one gem, Rooster Cogburn.

I've never been a big fan of "John Wain", mysekf, but in addition to The Quiet Man, McClintock, and Rooster Cogburn, I think my favourite one of his is his final film, "The Shootist", with Lauren Bacall, Ron Howard, and Jimmy Stewart. Great movie!

I'll never forget the sight of that old republican war monger giving an Oscar to a movie that was so anti war, The Deer Hunter, and best actor and actress that year went to anti Vietnam crusader Hanoi Jane Fonda and nowadays real jerk Jon Voight, that had to hurt Wayne, LOL! But he got a beautiful ovation anyway, he was clearly loved by many.

Mad Men just had a scene where "I Know A Place" was playing in the background. I felt like I was watching Lucy Joins Madison Avenue, a lost HL episode... part of a Carters Go To NYC trilogy.

I love "True Grit"! Re: "The High And The Mighty"...my Mom thinks JW is the worst actor on the planet (but she loves that theme song) and in many ways...he is. But it just kinda "works" for him doesn't it. Great..big...TREE..of a man. Just like Kathy Hepburn said. And really...there's nothing sexier than that.... B)

My favorite of John Wayne's is "The Searchers".

On General Hospital, in a scene with two male characters, one character calls his sidekick, "Ethel".

I was flipping around aimlessly a few minutes ago and happened upon Carl Reiner guest starring on Two And A Half Men. He had a quip about Lucy:

"Did I tell you I once met Lucille Ball?"
(Yes)
"I know she wasn't a real redhead. Ask me how I know! It's dirty!"

And Joy Behar also had a rather lengthy Lucy mention on her show tonight courtesy of The Divine Miss M, Bette Midler. Bette showed a clip of her HBO special based on her show that airs New year's Eve. The theatricality of one segment with Bette in a BIG splashy number reminded Joy of Lucy in her heyday on the show so she mentionned it and Bette started saying how she worshipped Lucy, loved her so much, that she had her over to the house and gary was there too, she was just starting out so i guess that means Bette COULD have been on Lucy's show then as we mentionned in other thread. She said she played scrabble with Lucy so this was a long time ago, even before her backgammon infatuation. Bette alluded to Lucy's VERY LOW voice saying she had abused it so long with that high pitched one that she lost all middle ground. She said the scrabble table was cemented to the ground with a BIG dictionnary on it and Lucy put down a seven letter eord as they started the game and Bette knew then that Lucy wasn't fooling around with this game, LOL!

Bette was great on Joy's show. I am beginning to think that "The Joy Behar Show" will be my new "Larry King". Not crazy about the host, but love the guests! :lucysmirk:

So true, i soured on Joy also, sometimes her questions are so stupid they evoke memories of Larry King and she keeps repeating the same things over and over reminding me of ME, LOL! Bette was terrific, the interview was much too short, if only she had been on for the whole hour as i thought she would, like we needed to hear that crap for half an hour before. One of the websites had said, Bette will be on Joy's show tonight unless Lindsay Lohan sneezes or something like that.
