It never ceases to amaze me how inter-connected people in showbiz seem to be. I guess it shouldn't be shocking as they would naturally run around in the same circles, just as in most any industry. Nevertheless, I keep coming across family connections that surprise me. And often those connections lead to someone associated with Lucille Ball or her shows. I figure there ought to be a thread for this to uncover some of the lesser known connections, and maybe make a game of it. It would go like this: Someone poses one of these questions, and the next person answers along with a new "family connection" question. For example:
Question: What is John Travolta's family tie to Lucy?
Someone responds with the answer: John Travolta's brother-in-law is the son of Bea Benadaret.
And then the new question (to kick this off): What is this song's family tie to I Love Lucy?
