  1. SIXTH? Really? AND she not only had her Dean Martin hair on but also a beautiful outfit, how nice to not see her in pants during that period, really lovely!!!!! :wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub:

     

    Really. She was on in February 1954, October 1955 with Desi, January 1961, May 1963 with Bob Hope, March 1965, and here in July 1965. I wonder if she also holds the record for the shortest timespan between appearances with the four months between her March and July 1965 stints.


  2. Every year I hope Dick Van Dyke is included. :( Hopefully next year. There was a big campaign to try to get a Kennedy Center Honor for Carol Channing this year. It looks like it didn't work. If they gave it to her this year alongside Jerry Herman, they could have killed two birds with one stone. They could have done just one big "Hello, Dolly!" production number.


  3. Although "Lucy and the Guard Goose" might not be one of the better Life with Lucy episodes, I think it (along with "Breaking Up is Hard to Do") contains Gale's best performance on the series.

     

    Gale is marvelous in "Lucy and Uncle Harry's Pot," but he actually has a very small role in it. My vote would go for "Harrison Carter, Male Nurse," which, to me, might be the greatest showcase for Gale in the entire series.


  4. There was no formal Emmy category for guest actors during the Lucy years, but if you could nominate one guest actor per season, who would it be? I just did one per season, however the category nowadays is broken into male and female performer categories.

     

    These would be my nominations for Best Guest Actor/Actress:

     

    I Love Lucy

    1951-1952: John Emery “The Quiz Show” (Sam/Harold/Julius… JULIUS?!)

    1952-1953: Verna Felton “Lucy Hires a Maid” (Mrs. Porter)

    1953-1954: Mabel Paige “The Girls Go into Business” (Mrs. Hansen)

    1954-1955: Kathryn Card “The Hedda Hopper Story” (Mrs. McGillicuddy)

    1955-1956: Mary Jane Croft “Return Home From Europe” (Evelyn Bigsby)

    1956-1957: Eleanor Audley “Lucy Wants to Move to the Country” (Eleanor Spaulding)

     

    I didn’t intend for so many to be female character actresses, but Eleanor Audley and Verna Felton were the first people I thought of when I thought of award worthy guest performers.

     

    The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show:

    1957-1958: Tallulah Bankhead “The Celebrity Next-Door”

    1958-1959: Paul Douglas “Lucy Wants a Career”

    1959-1960: Milton Berle “Milton Berle Hides Out at the Ricardos”

    1963-1964: Michael J. Pollard (JUST KIDDING!)… Ethel Merman “Lucy Teaches Ethel Merman to Sing”

    1964-1965: Ann Sothern “Lucy and the Countess” (Countess Rosetta Harrington Framboise)

    1965-1966: Ann Sothern “Lucy and the Countess Have a Horse Guest” (Countess Rosetta Harrington Framboise)

    1966-1967: Carol Burnett “Lucy Gets a Roommate” (Carol Bradford)

    1967-1968: Vanda Barra “Lucy and Robert Goulet” (Waitress)

     

    Here’s Lucy:

    1968-1969: Jack Benny “Lucy Visits Jack Benny”

    1969-1970: Vivian Vance “Lucy and Lawrence Welk” (Vivian Jones)

    1970-1971: Richard Burton “Lucy Meets the Burtons”

    1971-1972: Ginger Rogers “Ginger Rogers Comes to Tea”

    1972-1973: Vanda Barra “Goodbye Mrs. Hips” (Vanda Barra)

    1973-1974: Jackie Coogan “Lucy’s Tenant” (Kermit Boswell)

    1986-1987: Audrey Meadows “Mother of the Bride” (Audrey)
