  1. Lucy Sightings!

    Thought this was a pretty odd sighting: towards the end of a Today show piece about Kevin Spacey’s recent video rant, a screenshot of the video on YouTube is shown, and in the right-hand pane you can see a link to the ‘Finding Lucy’ documentary [appearing around 1:59]:
  2. The Desi Photo Thread

    For a lady who carried Desi’s picture around in her pocket while she was pregnant, Lucy certainly got her wish: kids that look just like him!
  3. The Desi Photo Thread

    To me, he looks like a young Desi Jr here - even more so than usual.
  4. Lucy in The Cher Show on Broadway

    Has Cher ever publicly discussed this real-life conversation with Lucy? Would love to see/read that interview.
  5. Stu's Show Nov 7th Loving Lucy

    Yeah, I had no idea that he did video until yesterday.
  6. Deleted information from A Book.

    Just came across a description of the contents of the Desi Arnaz Papers collection: https://oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/kt9779s1j1/entire_text/ I’m assuming it’s a different collection than what is described earlier in this thread, but I thought it was interesting. P.S. With regard to Desi claiming that Lucy slept with all her male costars, it sounds a lot like Lucy‘s claim to Paula Stewart that Desi slept with every woman in Hollywood. Sounds like they both had a tendency to exaggerate. I’ll bet, though, that Lucy sometimes wanted Desi to THINK that she was playing around on him to make him jealous. She admitted she liked to play games, too. (Whether she did cheat or not is another thin’.) 25 tapes! What a treasured trove. Would love to know who has ‘em.
  7. Stu's Show Nov 7th Loving Lucy

    Thanks for the background! Yes, that was my first time watching the show live. The recordings that I’ve downloaded have always been two hours, so I was surprised that this was four. Made me wonder if perhaps Stu edits the recording down if the show runs over.
  8. Stu's Show Nov 7th Loving Lucy

    Thanks for the heads up about this! It was really great to see clips from the conventions. I hope Stu does some additional shows featuring more convention clips, which it sounds like he will if he gets enough positive feedback. (Although they could have done without all the convo on the Lucy box sets -- a 4+ hour show ending at 11:15 pm was long for an east coaster like me!) I had one question, though: they made much of why they don't do Lucy conventions anymore. Don't they have formal gatherings up in Jamestown every year? Are those not Lucy conventions?
  9. Random clippings

    Thanks! Do you know if Lucy ever got to Cuba -- or if Lucy and Desi took many vacations together, for that matter? We've heard about the Hawaiian vacations in the 50s, the ill-fated Europe trip in 1959, and I believe trips to Del Mar in the late 40s led to them buying property there. But other than that, I haven't heard much about them traveling together, except for Lucy meeting Desi in various places when he was on the road. I suspect in the 40s they were just glad to spend time on the ranch together when they got the chance.
  10. Random clippings

    Just came across this original clip about Lucy and Desi's wedding in The New York Times: You can see other headlines from that issue here: http://www.rarenewspapers.com/view/567032 I didn't realize that Lucy and Desi planned to honeymoon in Havana. Does anyone know if they actually went? I don't recall hearing anything about this.
  11. The Desi Photo Thread

    The above photo is Desi with Charlie Cinnomon, a press agent who helped orchestrate the 1976 opening of Miami Beach Theater of Performing Arts. Lucy and Desi came out for this event since Lucie Arnaz was starring in the theater's inaugural production, Jerry Herman's 'Mack and Mabel.' Here's a more well-known photo from that night:
  12. Working with Lucy

    Yes, can’t wait!
  13. Cute story about Desi arranging for the floating Santa, champagne and caviar. He was a charmer all the way!
  14. Lucy Sightings!

    The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” Instagram account posted a cute video of the trio doing a parody skit of ILL:
  15. Lucy Sightings!

    Seems like a long time coming! Kelly made the comparison between she and Mark and Lucy and Desi in this article from a few years back: https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/kelly-ripa-on-husband-mark-consuelos-i-worship-him-2013151/
