  1. I don't think so. Original swing Hal Shane will be playing one of the Vernon voices.
  2. A nice article celebrating the 50th anniversary: http://m.emmys.com/news/online-originals/heres-50-years-heres-lucy-part-1
  3. According to Lucie, Donna Murphy and, fellow original cast member, Tony winner Debbie Shapiro Graviette will play two of Sonia's "voices."
  4. Lucie and Robert Klein will be reprising their roles in They're Playing Our Song on Broadway on February 11 - the 40th anniversary of the show!
  5. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Carter family being introduced to America!
  6. Miami was February. Jamaica was the last week of March. Before she got ill and took a two week vacation in February, Lucy had already arranged to close Wildcat the week of Easter so she could take the kids to Jamaica. She later said she had a terrible time. She went there to relax and didn't know they had a war going on.
  7. CBS has all the Spelling shows, so they should have the rights to Life with Lucy. Lucy is a Sax Symbol is my least favorite episode of the run!
  8. Lucy reportedly introduced a salute to television. This segment, including Lucy, was completely cut from the television broadcast.
  9. I wonder if the missing footage from First Stop (and any other fourth season episode) will be included.
  10. Carol Brady was originally supposed to be a funny character. Joyce Bulifant was cast and then at the very last minute Florence Henderson was brought in and it was decided to cast her. Then they decided to make Alice the funny one and hired Ann B. Davis. A major reason Eve Plumb was hired was because she looked like she could be Joyce's daughter.
  11. If only the producers hasn't cut Lucy out of the show! This might have been the best she looked during the entire decade.
  12. This was 1961, in Jamaica during her Wildcat hiatus.
  13. Yes, why is "Lucy and Danny Thomas" the only episode from the brilliant sixth season of Here's Lucy? Why are there seven fifth season Lucy Show episodes? There is an offer on the Time Life site that combines this Lucy release with Carll Burnett DVDs so that explains why so many of Carol Burnett's appearances made this collection.

  15. 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!
  16. I haven't seen it, but she was promoting her new TV series, Sons & Daughters.
  17. Backstage at Happy Birthday Hollywood with Lana Turner and Ginger Rogers.
  18. All the Deplorables will be burning their Incredible Mr. Limpet DVDs.
  19. These are all terrific pictures. I don't think I've ever seen the resemblance between Desi Sr. and Desi Jr. as strong as it is in the first picture of Desi with Bob Hope.
  20. The "Popular Oscar" isn't happening. At least not this year. Whew. https://variety.com/2018/film/awards/academy-retreats-on-popular-oscar-category-for-now-1202930117/
  21. Gloria Jean's inability to get to Milwaukee was the reason Lucy had to stay on her benefit tour there, which kept delaying Desi's wedding plans.
