  1. Since it's Emmy night, I was wondering if you had to select one episode from each season to submit to the Emmy committee for the Lucy cast members what would it be? We've done this for Lucy in the past, but how about the supporting players. These would be my submissions for Lucie for Best Supporting Actress and Desi Jr. for Best Supporting Actor. Lucie: Here’s Lucy: 1968-1969: Lucy’s Working Daughter 1969-1970: Lucy Protects Her Job 1970-1971: Lucy and the Raffle 1971-1972: Kim Moves Out 1972-1973: Lucy and Donny Osmond 1973-1974: Lucy Fights the System Desi: Here’s Lucy: 1968-1969: Lucy Helps Craig Get a Drivers’ License 1969-1970: Lucy and Ann-Margret 1970-1971: Lucy and Buddy Rich What would you choose?

  6. As Brock noted, Bill Frawley is in "Alibi Ike."
  7. I debated posting the Roman Scandals shot because I wasn't 100% it was Lucy. I finally talked myself into it. I never would have guessed it was Barbara Pepper! When I first saw that other photo, I immediately thought of Mame. I'm so glad you did that comparison, Rick. It's wonderful!
  8. It looks like he was doing a play on Broadway for part of 1983.
  9. Walter Winchell also did the narration for The Lucy Show episode "Lucy the Gun Moll."
  10. Thank you, Rick! I knew you would know the answer.
  11. Just found this website with more pictures from that party. It was Walter Winchell's birthday in 1953. I can see from the other pictures it is not William Powell.
  12. The man next to Betty above Lucy looks like William Powell to me.
  13. I was just about to post this too. It sure explains a lot. I'm glad Elroy said Lucy was nice. She certainly was being nice if she told him "Lucy the Superwoman" was funny. I think Elroy is also credited as cowriter with Bob O'Brien on "Lucy Gets a Roommate" and "Lucy and Carol in Palm Springs." It's interesting that Elroy and his brother are no longer speaking.
  14. I'm now in season two. One thing I've never noticed before is the differences in the sets after they changed studios for the second season. There are quite a few differences in the Hubbards' living room.
  15. Could it be "Lucy and the 20/20 Vision?" When Lucy shows Craig the contract that does not have the dotted line, she says, "See? Here," but her lips are clearly saying something else.
  16. This has been driving me crazy for 24 hours. I finally figured it out. "Not lately" is from "Lucy the Music Lover" in the scene in the music shop.It is Lucy's reply to Dr. Eastman when he asks, "You've heard Reiner conducting Rubinstein in Rachmaninoff's 'Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini'?"
  17. Lucy: There are moments in a maiden's life when her days are pure as bliss. But the moment of them all, the moment I'll recall, the blissest of the bliss, is this. For today, you will slay me a dragon. My darling, my hero, I'm thrilled. Scotty MacTavish MacDougall MacArdo: Eh. Lucy: It's like we're in a fairy tale... except you'll probably get killed. So for thirty-two bars, let us sing and act merrily. Scotty: Life is ours. Lucy:...Temporarily.
  18. Carol was supposedly rumored to play the role of Gooch at one time. I don't know if this was before or after Madeline Kahn was cast. Cactus Flower would have been great for Lucy. I would have LOVED to have seen Lucy as Mrs. Iselin in "The Manchurian Candidate." Another part I would have loved to have seen Lucy play on film is the Jean Arthur role in "A Foreign Affair." Lucy is terrific in The Screen Directors' Playhouse radio version. Marlene Dietrich pretty much steals the film from everyone else. I would have loved to have seen Lucy play opposite her in it. I totally think she could have done "Hello, Dolly!" as well. (And maybe work with Walter Matthau here too!)
  19. According to Bob and Madelyn's Archive of American Television Interview, the series was sold, but Carol opted to do "Thoroughly Modern Millie" instead. Carol's contract stated she did not have to do the show if it was picked up. Carol said the recently the writers tried to make her too much like Lucy and that's not what she wanted. General Foods was supposed to sponsor it. Carol ended up winning a Golden Globe and being nominated for an Academy Award for "Thoroughly Modern Millie." I think the show ran something like 37 minutes. I think the scenes with Carol narrating could have been easily cut for broadcast. However, it would still be too long. To my knowledge, it never aired. I think the show is a riot. Jane Dulo is always hilarious. I wish she had appeared in a Lucy episode.
  20. Ethel: I don't want to see Europe anyway... it's so old! Ethel: Give her the money? Is she goin' with us?
  21. Hooray for Betty's well deserved Emmy! Too bad she wasn't there to accept it. Ann-Margret also finally won an Emmy! She received the only standing ovation of the night.
