  1. I’ve never seen this terrific photo from the great bygonebroadway Instagram page.
  2. Thrilled to see they have rectified last year’s appalling oversight and included Kaye tonight! Perfect image of her!
  3. Some audio of Lucie in Mack and Mabel. I want to hear more!
  4. Sorrowful Jones makes its TCM debut in just a few hours at 11:15 EST tonight.
  5. Steve Marlo, who played Hy in Viv Visits Lucy and the guard in Lucy and the Submarine, died last month at 92. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2019/12/31/steve-marlo-actor-specialised-crazed-killers-no-good-gunslingers/
  6. Looks like her, but that is Lucy’s friend Betty Furness, longtime spokesperson for Westinghouse.
  7. The New York Times interviewed several people who worked with Jerry including Lucie. “When Tommy Tune and David Cryer and I starred in Jerry’s hoped-for reincarnation of his masterful ‘Mack & Mabel,’ we did a run-through just before opening out of town. This is when you do the entire show in a real theater free for the Broadway community, but without sets, lights or costumes — just a few props and a piano player. My favorite memory was of Jerry onstage at an upright piano, sitting atop two telephone books, playing the entire score for us. That’s the kinda mensch he was.” LUCIE ARNAZ is a stage and television actress. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/28/theater/remembering-jerry-herman-harvey-fierstein-chita-rivera.html
  8. The title song of the Jerry Herman revue "Jerry's Girls" (set to "It's Today!") lists many of the famous women who have sung Jerry's songs including "Lucie Arnaz and her mother."
  9. I wish Jerry had been well enough to see the recent revival of Hello, Dolly! I have never seen audiences so enthralled. I'm so glad they revived it as Jerry had written it without any attempt to modernize it. Encores is finally doing Mack and Mabel in a few months. Their "Look What Happened to Mabel" excerpt as part of their "Hey, Look Me Over!" compilation event a couple years ago was the highlight of the show.
  10. Jerry’s wonderful Kennedy Center Honors tribute.
  11. Mame compsoser Jerry Herman, has passed away at the age of 88. He brought the world so much joy. https://www.latimes.com/obituaries/story/2019-12-27/jerry-herman-dead
  12. The most watched program of the night! https://www.google.com/amp/s/deadline.com/2019/12/i-love-lucy-christmas-special-tv-ratings-wwe-smackdown-friday-1202815623/amp/
  13. New interview with Carole from Australian television. Most of the conversation is about Lucy.
  14. Mary Jane wore her first "Country Club Dance" dress in her sole big screen feature, Kathy O'.
  15. Thanks for the fascinating insight! After the first telecast, a lot of people online seemed to want Allison Janney to play Maude. She seems like a good choice, although she is tied to a CBS show.
  16. At the Comedy Center in Jamestown last year, on display was a pink and gold gown worn by Lucy that the group had trouble identifying. Finally it was determined that this was Lucy’s costume from John Wayne’s Swing Out, Sweet Land, but without the floor length vest she wore over it. While watching Lucy and the Generation Gap today, I had the realization that this was the same costume Lucy wore as Mrs. Julius Caesar. I somehow never made the connection before. Maybe the long wig and crown jazzed it up a bit more.
  17. Emmy and Tony Winner Ron Leibman has died at 79. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ron-leibman-dead-actor-angels-america-wheres-poppa-friends-was-82-1197320 He and Jessica Walter were so much fun together on Gilbert Gottfried’s podcast not too long ago.
  18. Jane said she didn’t think Lucy had many friends, but I don’t know what gave her that impression.
  19. Jane seemed to make a similar statement.
  20. Jane Connell did an interview with Michael Karol for one of his books. Overall, she liked Lucy and the experience, but she thought Lucy seemed paranoid like she thought people were against her. She said Lucy clashed with Gene Saks. Lucy was very nice to her. Jane wasn’t a fan of the finished project and wished Angela could have done it. I believe Joyce Van Patten discussed the film on Gilbert Gottfried’s podcast recently. I should listen to that. She would have a different perspective than Jerry, Bea, and Jane because she was not involved with the Broadway production.
  21. There have been rumors of Lucy and Preston not exactly clicking, but I don’t recall either of them publicly commenting on the other. Lucy did do a tribute to him (recreating the Mame title number) at The Thalians a decade after they did Mame. Although it is possible she was willing to do that just to support the charity.
