  1. I’m absolutely shocked and so saddened by this news. How devastating.
  2. I bought this on an impulse the other day. I had it shipped to my home in the states for economical reasons, but will happily share details once I have access to it.
  3. That’s curious news, indeed. I wonder who Robert Pine will be playing. Interesting they snagged someone who once worked with the actual Lucille.
  4. Thanks for sharing this! I was disappointed to see the YouTube version was taken down and have been looking for it again ever since.
  5. I think either Carole or Lisa would’ve made fine dubbing choices. Having heard Lisa’s work on Gypsy, I’d suspect the transition between her voice and Lucy’s would’ve been nearly seamless. Lucy tries her hardest, and I know Jerry Herman grew very fond of her because of how hard she worked, but she’s clearly a bit out of her element. However, I concur that she made some fine acting choices, and the supporting cast was great. I think my biggest issue with the film is how it was directed and edited. I suspect Gene Saks was thinking too much like a stage director; he left too many gaps for laughter and applause, which kills the flow if you’re watching the film alone or with an unresponsive audience. This threw off the pacing. As Neil’s custom edit showed, the film easily could’ve been tightened up with a few minor snips here and there. Had Lucy not broken her leg and the film had proceeded with George Cukor, I think the overall product would’ve had more polish, but it certainly has a lot going for it as it is.
  6. Thanks for sharing these! It’s strange for me to see promos for The Lucy Show, as I never caught it when N@N aired that series.
  7. Men Are Messy and Fred & Ethel Fight were featured on the latest episode of Dynasty. They inspired Fallon to have retro-sitcom style “dream sequences” where she gained inspiration from the plots to solve some family problems. Concept was better than the execution, but...they tried.
  8. No, they’re bare bones. Just the episodes. Apparently they weren’t sold into later syndication packages due to music licensing. The Volume 2 DVD mentions that some music has been changed, so the edit must’ve occurred on that non-syndicated episode.
  9. Arden of Eden: “Our Miss Brooks” star signs on for biblical teleplay Desilu Playhouse Sponsor Feud! Tennessee Ernie runs down Betty Furness in new Ford! “It came back?” - Furious Vance quits after Desilu paycheck bounces Less is Moore: Exclusive details about Candy’s new zero-episode contract!
  10. That’s interesting. I wasn’t aware of any examples of her other shows being watched by fictional characters. It’s almost always I Love Lucy.
  11. Ken Levine wrote an interesting piece about this list. He argued I Love Lucy should’ve been number one, given its enormous influence, even though it isn’t his personal favourite. http://kenlevine.blogspot.com/2021/05/top-100-sitcoms-of-all-time-really.html

  13. Thanks to a VPN and Tubi, I’m able to watch this show for the first time in nearly a decade! Lucy & Lawrence Welk - Viv gets some of her funniest ever lines in this instalment. And it’s wonderful seeing her and Mary Jane together again. That hadn’t happened since the Danfield/Audrey Simmons era, and even MJ gets to do more comedy than usual. God bless Lawrence, but the wax sculpture has more personality than the real one. Lucy is Really in a Pickle - It’s no Vitametavegamin, but the faces she makes when attempting to eat the pickles are very funny. I know her filling them with fudge is played for comedy, but it also shows an intelligence that’s often lacking in her later characterisations. She found a solution which allowed her to perform as expected. Effective advertising, too - I cracked open a jar of pickles midway through. No fudge required. Lucy’s Big Break - I’d completely forgotten Lloyd Bridges was in this one. And I never realised before that the “mhmm” lady was Dorothy Konrad of the barbershop quartet. Mary Wickes is a total scene stealer as the nurse. Alan Oppenheimer’s role must’ve been compensation for Lucie’s pilot not selling.
