  1. That’s one of Ethel’s insults when trying to pick a fight in The Ricardos Are Interviewed. Ethel says that Lucy’s bridge playing may “bring back Mahjong.”
  2. I watched Lucy Goes on Her Last Blind Date. Although the too silly last minute of the episode prevents me from putting this in my top episode list, I wish there were more episodes like this one. Lucy is presented as smart and sophisticated, far different from the early episodes of the series. Lucy also looks terrific in the episode. I wish there were were many more episodes with Mary Jane, Vanda, and Sam in the coffee shop. I love Lucy’s interplay with her friends.
  3. Sid Haig, who played the mummy in Lucy and the Monsters and one of the enemy agents in Lucy and the Great Airport Chase, has died at 80. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/sid-haig-dead-house-1000-corpses-star-dies-at-80-1242420
  4. A photo caption mentions the DVD release. It is a good article. Donovan Scott is also interviewed.
  5. Jonathan Groff loves Lucy. https://www.vulture.com/2019/09/jonathan-groff-little-shop-of-horrors.html
  6. Life with Lucy is getting a Closer cover story with interviews from Ann Dusenberry, Tom Watson, and Michael Stern.
  7. I love these photos! This was a August 1971 event at the Hollywood Bowl for Nosotros, a group Ricardo Montalban founded to increase acting opportunities for Hispanic performers.
  8. Two time Tony winner and Goodson-Todman favorite Phyllis Newman has passed away at 86. https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Phyllis-Newman-Has-Passed-Away-at-86-20190915
  9. I watched this a few weeks ago and thought it was great. I didn’t know of most of Marsha’s impressive post-film stardom accomplishments.
  10. There was a viral Twitter thread a few weeks ago that asked who was the nicest celebrity you ever encountered. Valerie’s name came up many times. She would definitely have to be in the top two or three for everyone who met her.
  11. Valerie was brilliant as Tallulah. Some moments of her performance still make me laugh just thinking about them.
  12. I'm so glad she was able to see how loved she was while she was still with us.
  13. Our beloved Valerie has passed. https://abc7ny.com/actress-valerie-harper-dies-at-80-family-says/5503817/
  14. I Love Lucy gets a mention by a Manson follower in Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.
  15. Wishing our beloved Valerie a happy and healthy 80th birthday!
  16. Mary Jane, Parley Baer, Lyle Talbot, and Don DeFore appear in the 1981 Ozzie & Harriet Christmas Special.
  17. Those future exhibits all sound great! Report back with more details throughout your trip!
  18. From the “behind the scenes” look at the colorization process, it appears we will be getting The Freezer colorized soon.
  19. What a fun night! My sold out screening had technical problems at the beginning. The audience was sitting in the dark in front of a black screen for about 20 minutes when suddenly the friendly face of Rick Carl appeared on screen. About a minute of the middle of the featurette played and then suddenly stopped. Then the featurette started from the beginning and there were no additional issues. The crowd was incredibly diverse. Every type of person you could imagine was there. Everybody seemed to be having a wonderful time. A group of women were wearing red wigs, although they looked more Little Mermaid than Lucy. It was fun hearing people saying favorite lines too. My two favorite moments: there was audience applause when the Vitameatavegamin set appeared and, later, for Frank Nelson. I think The Million Dollar Idea looked the best. Of course, that was the most recently colorized. The featurette was incredibly well done and informative. It was great to see Tom, Rick, and Jonathan on screen. I think the audience really connected with them. I loved seeing the difference between the 1990 Christmas show colorization and the more recent one and I loved seeing a brief clip of Kiddie Parties, Inc. on the big screen. The theater said they were not sent any posters. They gave everyone a free pass for a future movie because of the issues tonight. I hope they do this again!
  20. Legendary, 21-time Tony Award winning producer-director Hal Prince has died at 91. ☹️ https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjUxeCdwt_jAhXpct8KHc3SDp4QzPwBegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.broadwayworld.com%2Farticle%2FHal-Prince-Legendary-Broadway-Producer-and-Director-Passes-Away-at-91-20190731&psig=AOvVaw02hCxofCsbpd-nnbrVysTn&ust=1564674865739357
  21. There were two theaters doing screenings in New York City and all I could get was one seat in the first row. Luckily, one of the theaters added another screening and I got a better seat. The second screening looks pretty full.
  22. After many mergers and buy outs, the Aaron Spelling library is owned by CBS.
  23. It says the artwork “has not been finalized and is subject to change.” Start a campaign like for The Lucy Show season two.
