  1. Thanks, Shelly! It’s been very gratifying to read the responses so far!
  2. It’s released! Episode 1: “Jamestown” Go to TCM.com/lucy for more ways to listen and for pictures and additional information.
  3. Lucie discusses the past, present, and future on “Front Row Classics.”
  4. My biggest pet peeve is when people try to minimize her success as a movie star or make it seem like she was washed up prior to television. That is ridiculous. I’m very happy Lucie spoke up about this and I hope this scene ends up on the cutting room floor.
  5. Lucie said in a subsequent interview the scene she objected to had Lucy being fired from RKO (or MGM, but in period that was supposed to be RKO), which is something that did not happen. She was right to call them out on this.
  6. Here is the rest of the planned schedule for Lucy’s extensive Star of the Month tribute: October 21 evening: 8:00pm Du Barry Was a Lady (1943) 10:00pm The Big Street (1942) 12:00am Miss Grant Takes Richmond (1949) October 22 morning: 2:00am The Fuller Brush Girl (1950) 4:00am Her Husband’s Affairs (1947) 6:00am Dance, Girl, Dance (1940) 8:00am Ziegfeld Follies (1946) 10:00am Meet the People (1944) 11:45am Look Who’s Laughing (1941) 1:15pm That’s Right - You’re Wrong (1939) 3:00pm Two Smart People (1946) October 28 evening: 8:00pm Yours, Mine and Ours (1968) 10:15pm The Facts of Life (1960) 12:15am Mame (1974) October 29 morning: 2:30am Critic’s Choice (1963) 4:30am Valley of the Sun (1942) 6:00am Without Love (1945) 8:00am Easy Living (1949) 9:30am The Marines Fly High (1939) 10:45am Best Foot Forward (1943) 12:30pm Having Wonderful Time (1938)
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!“
  10. Lucy will be TCM Star of the Month in October! Here’s the first two weeks of programming (eastern times); subject to change. October 7 evening: 8:00pm I Dream Too Much (1935) 9:45pm Stage Door (1937) 11:30pm Room Service (1938) October 8 morning: 1:00am Bunker Bean (1936) 2:15am Don't Tell the Wife (1937) 3:30am Follow the Fleet (1936) 5:30am Chatterbox (1935) 6:45am Beauty for the Asking (1938) 8:00am Five Came Back (1939) 9:30am The Affairs of Annabel (1938) 11:00am Annabel Takes a Tour (1938) 12:15pm Panama Lady (1939) October 14 evening: 8:00pm Too Many Girls (1940) 10:00pm The Long, Long Trailer (1954) 12:00am Forever, Darling (1956) October 15 morning: 2:00am Easy to Wed (1946) 4:00am Seven Days' Leave (1942) 6:00am Next Time I Marry (1938) 7:15am Go Chase Yourself (1938) 8:30am A Girl, a Guy, and a Gob (1938) 10:15am Twelve Crowded Hours (1939) 11:30am You Can’t Fool Your Wife (1940)
  11. Toni Lamond (sister of Helen Reddy) from the original Australian cast of Wildcat performs “What Takes My Fancy.”
  12. 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!
  13. I’m on the look out for the new Barbra Streisand interview. That ought to be interesting.
  14. I’ve heard Rosie, Carol Burnett, Ron Howard, Fran Drescher, Sally Struthers, and Sean Astin so far.
  15. After waiting so many years, it was great to finally see this film released. I was thrilled Carole got so much screen time.
  16. 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.
  17. I sure love the idea of a Lucy-Desi channel with the Love, Lucy audio recordings!
  18. I knew you would love that one!
  19. 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
  20. Let’s Talk to Lucy will be heard again!
  21. Linda Lavin says she'll be playing Older Madelyn in scenes that lead to flashbacks. I wasn't expecting that.
  22. 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.
