  1. The show was very similar to her mother’s Let’s Talk to Lucy. Carol Burnett was the second guest.
  2. Gary said at one of Lucy’s Sherwood Oaks seminars in 1977 that Lucy originally hated the script for this episode. He said he talked her into doing it and she ended up loving it. At Lucy’s 1984 Museum of Broadcasting seminar, she said she was the one who wanted a script in which she ordered Big Duke around.
  3. The only other one I’ve ever noticed is from another fifth season episode that is also in the public domain, “Lucy the Babysitter.” When the chimp plays the organ, the song was originally “Lullaby of Broadway.” It was replaced by a generic tune on the official DVD.
  4. The paralysis was psychosomatic and she was was cured with hypnotism.
  5. Miss Pat also did her act in the movie Divorce, American Style with Dick Van Dyke, Debbie Reynolds, and Van Johnson. It was filmed before her Lucy Show episode aired, but released after. Pat was also in a contestant on What’s My Line? in 1961. She said she got involved in hypnosis after suffering from hysterical paralysis.
  6. Lucie announces the birth of her newest grandson, George Henry Luckinbill, who was born today.

  8. Kaye on The Rosie O'Donnell Show from 1996! Having guests like Kaye is a reason why The Rosie O'Donnell Show was the best talk show.
  9. Desi does a voiceover promo for Billy Hinsche’s online show. It’s great to hear him. Hopefully he can be a guest with Billy.
  10. Some groovy new casting announcements. https://www.thewrap.com/lucille-ball-biopic-being-the-ricardos-tony-hale-alia-shawkat-jake-lacy-cast/ There are some Lucy-Desi connections in the cast. Robert Pine appeared in The Lucy Showepisode “Lucy Gets Her Diploma” and Linda Lavin worked with Desi in an episode of Alice (produced by Bob and Madelyn). Also, John Rubinstein costarred with Lucie in the National tour of Pippin. I wonder who they are playing.
  11. Fun interview with Julie Halston and Jim Caruso. Lucie says that filming on the Being the Ricardos movie started today.
  12. Kate Luckinbill will be on The Today Show tomorrow, March 22.
  13. After Nina’s Tony winning Broadway triumphs several years ago, I expected her to become the biggest thing in show business. For whatever reason, that didn’t happen. She does work constantly and seems to be the go-to for supporting roles in show business period films. She previously had standout roles in Florence Foster Jenkins and Stan & Ollie.
  14. The extremely talented Nina Arianda is in talks to play Vivian. She is 15 years younger than Nicole Kidman. 😳 https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/j-k-simmons-nina-arianda-in-talks-to-join-aaron-sorkins-i-love-lucy-drama-exclusive
  15. JK Simmons has been cast as Bill Frawley! Sounds good to me. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/j-k-simmons-play-william-203011708.html
  16. This 2004 interview from the SAG Foundation is really great.
  17. Cloris Leachman has left us. There was no one else like her. https://www.thewrap.com/cloris-leachman-oscar-winning-star-of-young-frankenstein-and-phyllis-dies-at-94/
  18. Like most of Amazon’s films, this would likely get a theatrical release and qualify for Oscars.
  19. Great statement from Lucie. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CKK7JLgl1Mt/?igshid=11rdhyp5021fq She does now have me wanting to see a sequel with Carole Cook in the lead, though.
  20. The Kennedy Center Honors seems to be back on track after the past few years. They are finally honoring Dick Van Dyke! There is no one more deserving. Other honorees include Debbie Allen, Joan Baez, Garth Brooks, and violinst Midori. The honors will be held over a week in May and air June 6 on CBS. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/13/arts/kennedy-center-honors-pandemic.html
