  1. It's official: the world is only catering to the lowest common denominator. With this and the Kennedy Center Honors debacle, I give up. We already have the People's Choice Awards
  2. The Oscars Make Terrible Changes

    The ceremony needs Jane Fonda to do a 50th anniversary tribute to this Oscar presentation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLJ8RjvesnvDPXKGB3lFq3PXKHn-ZKitO5&v=jG96Q1CLv6E
  3. Ken Berry has died

    Ken was part of the company. He was discovered in a Los Angeles musical, The Billy Barnes Revue (with Jackie Joseph). However, he left Desilu when The Billy Barnes Revue transferred to Broadway. This is why he isn't part of The Desilu Revue. After the show closed in New York, Ken returned to Desilu and was given a regular role on The Ann Sothern Show.
  4. Ken Berry has died

    Ken Berry, The Lucy Show guest star and Desilu player, has died at 85.
  5. Lucy's MAME is coming on Blu-Ray!!!

    I ended up watching the whole movie and it looks terrific!
  6. Lucy's MAME is coming on Blu-Ray!!!

    IT'S TODAY! My Blu-Ray just arrived! The only extras are the trailer and the (this time correctly titled) "Lucy Mame" featurette. I took a brief look at the film itself and it looks great. I'm debating whether or not to watch the whole movie tonight. I usually watch Mame during Christmas week, but I might need a little Christmas now.
  7. Lucy Sightings!

    Hopefully this link works: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/harold-prince-the-directors-life-full-film/9138/?button=fullepisode
  8. Lucy Sightings!

    I was watching the PBS documentary "Harold Prince: The Director's Life" and Prince discussed how Too Many Girls was one of the first Broadway musicals that made in impression on him. Several pictures were shown over Desi singing "Spic and Spanish."
  9. They Love Lucy: Celebrity Lucy Fans

    "Lily of the Valley" is part of Lindsay Mendez's cabaret reptioire.
  10. The Oscars Make Terrible Changes

    Cicely Tyson's great honorary Oscar acceptance speech:
  11. I really don't know. It was part of a Douglas Fairbanks Jr. retrospective, but I don't know if that was the main draw. MOMA has a large membership and frequent afternoon screenings, so maybe a lot of people just see everything there.
  12. I went to a surprisingly very well attended screening of Joy of Living at the Museum of Modern Art this afternoon. I loved hearing the murmurs of "Lucille Ball!" during the opening credits and Lucy's first appearance. My favorite audience member was the man behind me who said, three minutes before the end of the movie, "That's Lucille Ball!"
  13. Kaye has fun with Burt Reynolds on The Tonight Show:
  14. DVR Alerts!

    I wonder if it's the original version. Since the movie underwent so much tinkering and many delays, there was a lot of footage cut. The DVD is edited. I wonder if any of Lucie's scenes were cut and, if so, will be restored.
  15. Stu's Show Nov 7th Loving Lucy

    Speaking of Steve Allen: I remember shortly after this, I think Thanksgiving 1999, FOX News did some kind of Lucy panel discussion and Steve and Jayne were among the panelists (maybe Carole was too). Did anyone ever see this? I remember at the time people online were mad that Steve was included. I don't know if that was because of his comments at the Lucy convention or because he said something during this interview. I never saw this special. I only heard about it afterwards.
  16. Stu's Show Nov 7th Loving Lucy

    I downloaded this and I planned to watch the first few minutes today, but ended up watching the whole four hours in one sitting. There are so many great stories and priceless clips. I especially loved the story about Mary Jane going on stage at the convention for the first time. Also the Ralph Hart clips and the My Favorite Husband recreation. The biggest shock was the photos showing Dick Van Dyke doing the audience warm up for the first episode of The Lucy Show! I hope Stu and Tom do another episode or two about the conventions.
  17. Lucy in The Cher Show on Broadway

    I love that "Lucy" is back on Broadway at the former Alvin Theatre!
  18. I want to go to Carole's monthly luncheon!
  19. I could only listen to the first hour last night, but Carole is her usual hilarious self! I loved the Robert Osborne story, which was touching and hysterical.
  20. Thanks! I can't wait to listen to this!
  21. Regal Mentions

    I can't think of any Here's Lucy mentions for the Quinn and Phil, but "Princess Anne and her new husband" get mentioned in Milton Berle is the Life of the Party.
  22. Here is a great new interview with Kaye that features some fantastic clips from her documentary!
  23. Time Life is releasing a Lucy DVD collection featuring 76 episodes of Lucy's series including four episodes of Life with Lucy! https://timelife.com/products/lucy-the-ultimate-collection Except for the booklet included, it looks like the many extras are all things that were released on the previous DVD set. As always with these "Best Of" sets, there are many weird inclusions ("Lucy the Fight Manager??!!") and exclusions. Groovy commercial!
