  1. Jimmy Garrett, our beloved Jerry Carmichael, has unexpectedly passed away at the age of 66. He brought so much to The Lucy Show. Jimmy is survived by his two beloved children, Amelie (age 13) and Spencer (10). Sending so much love to his family. Rest In Peace, Jimmy. Thank you.
  2. I have the original script for Mod, Mod Lucy. In the original script, after the dance number, Lucy as Kim talks with Harry and the Caldwells. The Caldwells compliment her and Harry tells “Kim” he is giving her a bonus… and it’s coming out of her mother’s salary. In the script, secretary “Doris Singleton” is named “Carole Elkins,” which always made me wonder if Ms. Cook was the initial casting idea.
  3. From a 1954 interview with Johnnie Ray: “I can recite to you the dialog of Best Foot Forward. (He did). I stopped counting after I saw that picture 21 times. When I met Lucille Ball and told her all the lines she had in that picture, she flipped!“

  5. Toni Lamond (sister of Helen Reddy) from the original Australian cast of Wildcat performs “What Takes My Fancy.”
  6. That list would include Dick Van Dyke, Carol Burnett, Julie Andrews, Candy Moore, Eva Marie Saint, Jane Powell, Mitzi Gaynor, Arlene Dahl, Julie Newmar, June Lockhart, Nancy Sinatra, Tommy Sands, and Mary Costa, plus Lucie and Desi Jr. Robert Sunval remains a mystery!
  7. I’m on the look out for the new Barbra Streisand interview. That ought to be interesting.
  8. I’ve heard Rosie, Carol Burnett, Ron Howard, Fran Drescher, Sally Struthers, and Sean Astin so far.
  9. After waiting so many years, it was great to finally see this film released. I was thrilled Carole got so much screen time.
  10. In the Ann Sothern interview, Lucy mentions that Lucie turned 13 a couple weeks earlier, so this was presumably recorded at the beginning of August. The Countess episodes began filming in November. Lucy says she wants Ann for two or three episodes. Plans might have already been in the works.
  11. I sure love the idea of a Lucy-Desi channel with the Love, Lucy audio recordings!
  12. I knew you would love that one!
  13. Press release with more information: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/lucille-balls-lost-radio-show-to-broadcast-exclusively-on-new-siriusxm-comedy-channel-lets-talk-to-lucy-301347202.html
  14. Let’s Talk to Lucy will be heard again!
  15. Linda Lavin says she'll be playing Older Madelyn in scenes that lead to flashbacks. I wasn't expecting that.
  16. This was a great moment. Originally the scene featured Fran talking to Lucy in her dream. This sequence never aired in reruns. CBS was celebrating their 50th anniversary on television and they had several of their current TV characters interact with classic CBS characters. I always loved all the Lucy mentions too. I think my favorite might be when Fran tells Elizabeth Taylor her favorite thing she did was Here’s Lucy.
  17. Lucie will be among the many stars participating in a fundraising event celebrating 75 Years of the Theatre World Awards. It will stream on Broadwayworld.com on Sunday, July 11 at 7:00pm.
  18. 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.
  19. The third season of TCM’s podcast, The Plot Thickens, will be all about Lucy!
  20. Great news! I wish they used the spectacular artwork that was on the cover of the DVD, though.
  21. Lucie and best friend Sue Cameron try to save Palm Springs’ Purple Room.
  22. The AFI has created a Robert Osborne webpage that includes highlights of his TCM intros. https://www.afi.com/robert-osborne/
