    Linda Lavin says she'll be playing Older Madelyn in scenes that lead to flashbacks. I wasn't expecting that.

    As memory serves, the season 6 DVD production notes mentioned it. It was hoped, I believe, that Henry Fonda would be the guest star, I think as a photographer who wants Lucy to pose for a calendar shoot. Something like that. Sorry, too tired to dig out my discs and check just now. But Lucy vetoed the show by writing a big “NO!!!” on the cover.

    Lucy's work ethic during this period must have been incredible. She was running a studio, starring in a hit TV show, doing specials and guest appearances, writing an autobiography, doing a radio show, *and* raising two teenagers at the same time. Looking forward to listening to these episodes! I've heard clips from some of Lucy's interviews with Mary Tyler Moore and Doris Day on YouTube, and they were great. At this point in her life/career, Lucy's voice hadn't turned to bass yet, so her voice is very pleasant to listen to.

    I found this very interesting Youtube video showing Desi's Palm Springs home and then a visit to the motel he started. Wow, what a great place for a Lucy fan or Lucy convention. I was amazed at the beautiful wondaful pictures of our famous duo.

    Yep. It seems like she's had a big chip on her shoulders for years, if not decades, regarding her mother. That's just my opinion though based on some interviews I've seen.

    On ebay there is a script for an episode called "Lucy Goes Commercial," which from the date of the script was intended for the early part of season three. From the page you can view, the scene with Lucy and Chris appears much like the "Here's Lucy" scene in which Lucy teaches Kim to grocery shop in "Lucy's Working Daughter."

    For reasons still unknown to me, the original 4 wrote a bunch but not all of season 2. Bob & Madelyn were on board for all 28 and even got sole writing credit on a few. Fred Fox & Iz Elinson were the co-writers on a number of episodes. In addition there were a few other writers. I cannot tell the difference in the quality of shows with different writers, so I say Bob & Madelyn were the driving force. It's unclear to me what the process was, as in, did the other writers do a first draft and then Bob & Madelyn did a polish? Desi and Bob&Madelyn had such a mutual admiration society, I can't see Desi knocking one of their scripts, so I'll bet the first draft of "Flies a Helicopter" was submitted by one of the outside writers. However, I think "Lucy Flies a Helicopter" sounds pretty funny! I did not know of Red Skelton's Guzzler's Gin sketch and how it might be the inspiration for Vitameta. I've since seen it. Red's style is totally different of course but the word he uses over and over again is "SMOOTH". If "Lucy Goes Commercial" is the same script I saw, the writers have Lucy saying the same thing: smooth. This episode was written for the 3rd season, not the 2nd. I've never heard of "Lucy is a Calendar Girl". PLEASE don't tell me the special guest star was Hugh Hefner.

    Shelly, that's (one of) the reason(s) I thought she put that spin on it, her name is gonna be on it (not to mention more than likely a nice chunk of $$$), what else can she say?? Also like mindedly (is that a word??), if Desi comes off better than her mom I'm sure that factors in her favoring it... oh my oh my oh my.... kinda wish the teaser hadn't been released yet, at least so far from the premiere (wonder if they'll "leak" more clips??), if for no other reason that my previously kinda-open-mind about this (sorta) is narrowing as I thought the narration of it by Kidman, the writing/what was espoused that is, is just downright OBNOXIOUS! 😮 The Lady would NEVER have gone on that way about herself, no matter how much she may have thought it of/to herself! Such a turnoff! If this is the overlying "tone" of the whole film, I think we're in for a world of hurt!

    A great story from Stu's Show last night celebrating the 70th Anniversary of I Love Lucy. Stu in the 80s gave Lucy a copy of The Ann Sothern Show from 1959. She invited him to stay and watch it with him. Right before the sleeping pill scene Lucy asked him to pause the tape and told him this story. Apparently Ann and her daughter Tisha did not get along. Ann found out that her limo driver was having sex with her daughter. I believe Tisha was around 16 at this time. Ann and Tisha had a huge fight in Ann's dressing room that was right next to Lucy's. There was lots of yelling and things being broken.

    I re-watched "Lucy, the Shopping Expert" this afternoon. I know other people, i.e. Geoffrey Mark Fidelman, really like this one, but I'm not a huge fan. Milt Josefsberg tended to write the Lucy character as being dumb and tacky (as opposed to sly, manipulative, and cunning,) and this episode is no exception. The scenes with Lucy messing up the melon display, eating vegetables without paying for them, and dropping things on the ground are annoying, rather than amusing. Like many of the first season episodes, this show feels more like a collection of scenes - as opposed to one unified episode. Individual parts of the episode (i.e. Gale Gordon's "birds and the bees" bit) are funny, but they didn't seem to come together as a whole for me.

    I'd never listen to anything else. Since the radio shows started the only music I have listened to was Saturday night at the roller rink. If I got audio on, it's Lucy. I know Desi did 10 tapes of audio about his book and it did sell at an auction but I'm assuming this is what Lucie is talkin about. I don't care if it sounds bad, I want to hear it.

    One little moment that says a lot was during an interview with Robert Stack when they were talking about The Untouchables and he thanks her for supporting it and she said something like "Well the credit goes to Mr. Arnaz." That's class.

    https://theplotthickens.tcm.com/season-three/ Lucy’s season now has a page! I’m very curious who the 50 people interviewed are not to mention any “surprising revelations.” As a side note, I’ve been wishing old Hollywood podcast “You Must Remember This” would cover Lucy is some form. The host, Karina Longworth, goes above and beyond in their research, engaging narration, music, etc. Highly recommend everyone check out that podcast as well.

    You can listen to the first season and the just premiered second season on the TCM website, YouTube, or whenever podcasts are available. https://theplotthickens.tcm.com/ The first season on Peter Bogdanovich was terrific. The current second season - about the making of the film Bonfire of the Vanities is very engrossing. I don’t know of anything that has presented the making of a movie with such an unfiltered access. The podcast going to do an outstanding job with Lucy.

    Sr based on the rest of his post. There is a scene in Ironside where Desi is in a car crash due to a tie rod cut. I think there was a mechanic in that. Its the only thing that made sense to me based on Desi's post 1960s work I've seen. But Desi wasn't a mechanic, he was a doctor.

    Contains the most bizarre segment of any Lucy movie. Colorful and dazzling to watch and somehow she shines. She doesn't embarrass herself which is saying a lot considering what she's given to do. Let's see Mary Tyler Moore, Irene Ryan, Inger Stevens, Shirley Booth or Patty Duke (63-64 Emmy Best Actress in a Comedy nominees bypassing Miss Ball) pull this off! This movie sat on the shelf for a couple of years for some reason. By the time of its release MGM had pretty much given up on Lucy, despite appearing in two semi-hits "Dubarry" and "Best Foot Forward" and as movie-stealing support in "Without Love" and "Easy to Wed", all except "Love" in glorious technicolor.

    Love this anonymous comment "Unimportant side-note (but I think noteworthy, at any rate): when I was a kid, my family went on one of those invasive Tour of the Star's Homes. You know, rubes in the big city, what can I say? Apologies to anyone who actually lives there and has to sit behind a big old bus on one of your narrow streets. Anyway, a lot of those tours are bullshit. They have no idea where anybody lives. But this was the 80s and, sure enough, we stopped outside Mlle. Ball's mansion and there she was in her front yard. That kind of thing is a terrible invasion of privacy and wouldn't happen nowadays, wouldn't be received well at all but she came to her gate, waved, posed for pictures, talked with us. And she had clearly not gotten ready for her day, was in her robe - just an amazing lady."

    I’ve been having an impromptu marathon the past few nights, including a few episodes I’ve never gotten around to watching before now. Lucy and the Ring-A-Ding-Ding: The Burton episode may be more famous and share the same basic premise, but I find this one to be far funnier. Mooney helping tranquillised Lucy Into her apartment is a tour de force. Lucie’s cameo (“And they worry about our generation!”) was the cherry on top. Lucy & The Submarine: I wouldn’t call this a standout episode but it is quite amusing. I’ve always loved the “Club, Auto” gag. The supporting cast is top notch and the “fire one” routine is terrific. It’s nice to see episodes where Mooney gets intimidated and knocked down a few pegs; it helps humanise the role and make him funnier. Viv Visits Lucy: If only all planes could land and deboard as fast as Viv’s! The reunion scene is incredibly heartfelt and touching, though it’s odd to learn that Lucy left Danfield prior to Viv’s wedding and hasn’t even met her new husband. Judging by Viv’s description, Lucy’s never even seen a photo of him. I’ve always found the bank scene funnier than the Sunset Strip segment, but it’s certainly a great late 60’s time capsule. Lucy & John Wayne: This one’s a bit loud and obnoxious for my tastes, though seeing Lucy immediately take over the set was quite amusing and well done. I love the Milton Berle cameo. Lucy With George Burns: A truly fun outing. This premise could’ve made for a fun format change, with Lucy touring alongside various celebrities and Mooney acting as her agent. Love Jack Benny’s voice appearance. Lucy & Phil Harris: And here is one I’d never seen before last night! After the madcap John Wayne episode, it was a bit jarring for me to shift gears into slower-paced, sentimental territory. It’s a bit schmaltzy at times but undeniably touching, and it’s good to see episodes which calm Lucy down a little and show what a good person she is. Harris tearing up during his song got me a little emotional, too. Oh, and Vanda’s waitress getup was great! Lucy & Sid Caesar: Here’s another brand new one for me, one I wanted to like more than I ultimately did. I think two “celebrity plays their own lookalike” episodes in one season was excessive. Nice to see Carole Cook return a “Gladys.” It’s a pity they couldn’t have found a steady recurring role for her like Mary Jane Croft. She was so often wasted in these bit parts. And Sid’s line about the boys winking at him...a gay joke on 1968 network TV??? Lucy Helps Ken Berry: Yet another never seen it before episode. I enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I would. Ken Berry was fantastic; hard to believe this was the same man who’d go on to play dimwit Vinton Harper. Lucy enrolling a bunch of burly truckers into dancing school was a hoot. I’m not a big fan of “song and dance” episodes, but at least it didn’t take up the entire show, and this routine was very well done. Also nice to see the full Ralph Story scene after years of enjoying those bloopers. (Was it common for secretaries to alternate as tellers as frequently as Lucy does this final season? Or did they just need an excuse to get her and Gale out into the lobby more often?) Lucy Meets the Berles: The genuine laughter during the salad scene makes it all the funnier. Watching Ruta trying to keep it together is especially great. I wish Miss Lee had appeared more often. She could’ve made a good girlfriend for Lucy, perhaps another neighbour in Glenhall. As Lucy and Mary Jane seem to be the only tenants season five onwards, a few more faces would’ve been nice to see.

    Interesting. All this talk of Pat Collins piqued my interest and I rewatched the episode yesterday, the first time in years I’ve seen it. The music edits were more extensive than I realised, most of them instrumental. This resulted in lots of little moments getting cut, such as everyone laughing at the movie and the bulk of Lucy’s wax museum pose, along with Pat’s accompanying line. Her entrance was also scrapped, cutting to her already onstage. I’m not entirely sure how all of this works from a technical standpoint, but a few of those moments definitely could’ve had the underscoring replaced instead of cut entirely.

    Since Joey mentioned Tubi...We have that in Australia, but the catalogue doesn’t seem as extensive. I logged on using a VPN and was surprised at how much more “Lucy” content there was. The Australian version only has the two-part “Funny World of Lucy” documentary. Must be a distribution rights issue. But I’m surprised they haven’t secured “Here’s Lucy” given its popularity in this country.

    You're probably right. Fewer shows were shot/aired in color in 65-66 than I realized. I always assumed, without any proof, that Dick Van Dyke went into the season knowing it was their last so continued in b/w because of that. I'd forgotten that Jeannie debuted that year and was initially in b/w (on color-pioneering NBC!) --with a different theme song. Me or Antenna is running the mostly-forgotten sitcom "Joey Bishop" which has the unique distinction of going from b/w in its first season to color for seasons 2 & 3, then back to b/w for its 4th and final. Filmed at Desilu, there are a lot of familiar names in the credits including Milt Josefsburg. Nothing is horrible about "Joey B..", but there's no draw either.

    You might right, I don't know. But I personally think why they chose to emphasis on I Love Lucy and not throw in more episodes of The Lucy Show in that particular marathon is because of their perception of the public's fondness and familiarity with ILL and feeling that having more I Love Lucy would draw in more viewers or sustain them unlike The Lucy Show. I could be wrong too. But I've noticed over the years since I became a fan of both shows is that many networks have had that same sentiment/line of thinking, unfortunately. If you noticed back when Nick-at-Nite first added I Love Lucy to their nightly schedule that was when they pushed The Lucy Show from its 11:30pm timeslot to later timeslots in overnight. Aside from weekends and special events here and there, from that point forward The Lucy Show never returned to prime-time or any timeslot earlier than 12:30am. I have always felt that the first three seasons of The Lucy Show had an I Love Lucy feel to them unlike the last two or three seasons of the show. That's not to say the other seasons weren't any good but they were just different as the show evolved. Different background music, different dynamic between the main characters, different writing, different settings and even Lucy's voice was different as it went from her almost "Lucy Ricardo voice" in the earlier seasons to a deeper, huskier one.

    After Nina’s Tony winning Broadway triumphs several years ago, I expected her to become the biggest thing in show business. For whatever reason, that didn’t happen. She does work constantly and seems to be the go-to for supporting roles in show business period films. She previously had standout roles in Florence Foster Jenkins and Stan & Ollie.

The number one thing that makes Nicole the right person for this part is she's a world-class actress," Well that's sort of a low bar.

    Today a kind of crummy looking public domain print of "Jack Benny's Bank Account" was recommended to me on YouTube, so I decided to watch it. For one thing, it's been awhile since I've had to see any public domain Lucy episodes, so this was not only a little nostalgic, but it also made me realize how good we have it today with such affordable high quality releases. Episodes from seasons 5-6 of TLS always seem to go by really fast. Not that any of her other shows dragged at all, but this era is lighter on plot and the episodes always end sort of abruptly. Isn't it amazing how Jack Benny could be so engrained in the public consciousness that a majority of this episode's motivations and laughs come from his persona that exists outside of the series? Take his very first gag, for example: Jack is seen playing the violin, and when the doorbell rings, he walks over and stops his record player, revealing that he was just miming playing the whole time. He then says "I'll be right back, Yascha." It gets mega laughs, but I can't imagine many people today would have any idea why it's so funny. The same goes for Jack's JELL-O tattoo and his line about "tripping over Phil Harris". Lucy's shows usually have pretty timeless humor without many cultural references; even when a popular personality guest stars it usually comes down to "this is a celebrity and Lucy is star struck", which is understandable in any era. However, this Jack Benny episode seems so unique.

    "Substitute Secretary" run by Decades the other day, commemorating 1967 50 years ago. (Was it??) Even though I've got it in at least 5 different forms from 5 different sources (including those "Lost" episodes), I couldn't resist watching it again. They do a little intro and in it, the hostess said of this season that "'The Lucy Show' was the 2nd highest rated show on the air, confusing this season with the next. And if we're talking about the 1967 part of the 67-68 season, "The Lucy Show" was the #1 show on the air. "SS" is great fun. Lucy's 5th season hoarseness is actually kind of cute but you can tell she's not doing herself any future favors by straining her voice. I think this season's vocal straining, more than anything was the cause of her later-in-life gravely voice. (Not "Wildcat", no drinking or smoking). I've said this before but I'll say it again: "Margo" is one of Lucy's most enjoyable dress-up character creations in her entire television career. The sustained laughter that greets her entrance is long and genuine as Lucy/Margo sways her hips back and forth waiting for it to die down. Everything she says is hilarious. She's in complete control without overdoing it. Even "Where?" gets a laugh. (To Audrey's "And over there...."). I love the way Margo laughs at her own jokes. I don't think we've seen this characterization in any form in the past (or since). Have we? For this episode alone, her 5th season Emmy was well-deserved (though she's good in others too). Why does Mooney pronounce "bar" and if it was "bah"? Apparently Juan Jose did his drag act the night before because he's forgotten to take his eye make up off (and of course nobody notices). Someone needs to tell "Esta" about his double life. Is her Juan Jose a racist portrayal? I don't think so, but I can't tell for sure. Juan's machine overflowing with suds immediately after he turns it on was an unnecessary bit of business. And yes, Lucy looks and sounds nothing like Barbara Morrison, but the rest of the episode is so good, I can forgive that. I like that they at least give a nod as to why Lucy would have these outfits. This sort of early-in-show set up of something that happens later is too often overlooked in the post Bob-Madelyn years. Mary Jane brought these "kooky" outfits from the studio including Margo's wig. "You can be a brunette one night just for kicks"....and apparently you can be a Mexican man and a buxom dowager for one night too--if you want! This script has the word "kooky" in it THREE times, said by 3 different people (I think). Just something I noted. A shining Bob O'Brien script. Practically all of my favorite Lucy episodes post 63-64 were written by Bob O. So many that I can forgive him for "Safari".
