  2. Mysteries at the Museum

    They showed a string of pearls worn by Lucille Ball at the Hollywood Museum in L.A. And yes, I saw that episode of Mythbusters! They debunked Miss Ball's story. She did have a tendency to make things up.
  3. Mysteries at the Museum

    Thanks for the heads up. Will tivo it. Mythbusters did this in their first season and concluded that it could not happen. What museum did they use to talk about it?
  4. Mysteries at the Museum

    Lucille Ball was the focus of one segment of Travel Channel's 'Mysteries at the Museum.' It was a recounting of Miss Ball's claim that one of her tooth fillings was picking up Japanese Morse code in 1942. An actress played Lucille Ball and there were some still photos of her. Here are the upcoming airdates. https://www.travelchannel.com/shows/mysteries-at-the-museum/episodes/the-witch-is-back-edisons-little-monsters-and-i-love-toothy

    Vulture has an article about other TV appearances made by the I Love Lucy cast. https://www.vulture.com/article/the-lost-adventures-of-the-i-love-lucy-cast.html
  6. Yesterday
  7. I don't know why but I got a hankering to watch "Baby Pictures", a stellar episode in every way. Nothing against Desi's musical segments, but this one at the end drags this episode down from the classic it is throughout the rest of the show. It's never mentioned in anyone's "top 10". It's one of Doris Singleton's greatest performances. Two instances in particular: 1) the way she pronounces "GLUTTON" in "I just hope that glutton of yours hasn't taught little Stevie any bad habits" and her expert body language when she delivers the line "He outgrew that, didn't he?". Has there ever been an episode where an occasional player has gotten that much solo screen time? Carolyn doing a mad dash cleaning up the apartment when Lucy's on her way up. Next to Mrs. McGillicuddy, Carolyn Appleby is the most valuable/underutilized supporting player of the series. (Counting "Japan", both Doris and Kathryn appeared in the same # of episodes: 10, so says imdb). The other episode on the disc "Lucy Tells the Truth" is also great. For the bridge club scene alone, it's one of my favorites. All four actresses at the top of their game and a script that gives them so much to work with. Shirley Mitchell made such an impression that it seems like her character appears in more than 3 eps. But isn't "It's a 3-ring circus" a lie? They all act like Lucy claiming she speaks Italian is the bet-winning lie. It's easy to see why I Love Lucy remained the #1 show on TV throughout its run.
  8. Perfectly stated, Brock. The entire evening was impeccable...and the Daveed Diggs sighting the following day was neat too.

  10. Georgia Engel has passed away

    This one genuinely breaks my heart. https://www.instagram.com/p/BwUx6lin7Rm/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  11. Georgia Engel has passed away

    It's a credit to Georgia that she was able to make what was essentially "a woman dumb enough to fall for Ted" into a believable fleshed-out character. I had no idea she was that young either. That would have made her in her mid-20s during the MTM run--26 years younger than her TV husband (sound familiar?). One of my favorite Georgette lines, complimenting Mary on her wine selection: "It's one of Ted's favorites.....white".
  12. Georgia Engel has passed away

    Betty, Patricia Heaton, Phil Rosenthal, and many more remember Georgia: https://deadline.com/2019/04/georgia-engel-reactions-betty-white-patricia-heaton-mary-tyler-moore-show-everybody-loves-raymond-1202596670/
  13. Lucy Sightings!

    A recent music video from Hailey Reinhart called “Honey, There’s The Door” prominently features a silhouette of Lucy and Desi as a visual. The video is very Old Hollywood-inspired but the end product is not anything terribly exciting or interesting.
  14. Lucy on Carol Burnett Show

    Lucy was in four episodes. The first three were released on the first box set of the “lost” episodes and the fourth was on the 50th anniversary collection set.
  15. Yes, looks that way. That's why I'm happy for the streaming because the sets that you need to get to get all the Lucy episodes are pretty $$. I'm sure it's been posted here somewhere, but how many episodes did Lucy appear on?
  16. Yes, ME-TV only shows the 30 minute versions. Are the CB episodes that are streaming - the same episodes that are out on DVD? Hopefully they have more available for streaming.

  18. Georgia Engel has passed away

    How very sad! She was a lovely lady and quite talented. And only 70, my goodness. My condolences to her friends and family. This is obviously a terribly sad day for Betty. Her guest appearances on Hot in Cleveland were always highlights. She and Betty had an ease to their interplay that was clearly indicative of their long friendship. I'm glad she left behind a body of work that will be remembered.
  19. Georgia Engel has passed away

    This is horrible news to end the day with. What a sweet, funny lady. My favorites from her are the uproarious "Pat's Secret" episode from the end of Raymond's run and a line that she had on MTM when she and Ted were getting married. While alone in Mary's bedroom, Mary asked Georgette if she was really sure that she wanted to get married. Mary said something along the lines of "Then you do love him?", and Georgette replied, "Of course I do, Mary. Somebody has to." And yes, my heart breaks for poor Betty, seeing so many of her friends go. But, I guess she wouldn't have lasted so long if she wasn't able to roll with the punches.
  20. Georgia Engel has passed away

    Georgia always had lines like “when you get to be our age...” with Betty on Hot in Cleveland. She was 27 years younger than Betty and 2 years older than Wendie Malick! Georgia was also brilliant on stage in the avant-garde Off Broadway drama “John” a few years ago. I wish the Times obit mentioned she won the coveted Obie Award for her performance, as well as her BAFTA nomination for the movie Taking Off.
  21. Georgia Engel has passed away

    I'm shocked to learn she was only 70. I saw her in The Drowsy Chaparone on Broadway and she was just delightful. Man, Betty White just keeps hanging strong, sadly watching so many of her friends pass away.
  22. Georgia Engel has passed away

    This is so sad. She was wonderful and a completely unique performer.
  23. Georgia Engel has passed away

    Georgette's Steam Heat!
  24. Georgia Engel has passed away

    I had the great pleasure of seeing Georgia several times on stage, most recently less than a year ago in the musical "Half Time." She was outstanding in her role, in which she did a hip hop number!
  25. I'm stunned. Georgia Engel has passed away at the age of 70. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/obituaries/georgia-engel-dead.html What a singular talent!
  26. Wildcat

    Wildcat was nominated for the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album. How to Succeed in Business... won. Lucy won the Aegis Theatre Club Award. Don Tompkins won the Outer Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical Performance.
  27. Wildcat

    Can someone give a list of awards and nominations this play "won"?
  28. I believe that's what's happening to the versions to be played on MeTV.
