  1. Wow! I wonder if there will be any extras. It will be very nice to finally have every Lucy episode on DVD.
  2. Lucie and Lucy wanted to do a line of I Love Lucy inspired clothes in the ‘80s, but couldn’t get any company interested. The companies wanted to do the costumes and not the regular Lucy Ricardo clothes. I’m glad their vision is finally happening.
  3. I wonder how the real Jim and Dorothy felt about TV Jim giving Dorothy a black eye.
  4. Human remains found are thought to be actor Charles Levin. He played the cop in Lucy and the Guard Goose and Coco the houseboy in the pilot of The Golden Girls. https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/07/remains-found-in-josephine-county-thought-to-be-those-of-missing-hollywood-actor.html
  5. I think Lucie’s mistaken there. She also says it was from Pioneer Women instead of Job Switching.
  6. It was always hard to fathom that the Rip Torn of later years was the same guy from Critic’s Choice. He lived a life!
  7. Two interviews with Lucie about the upcoming colorization event and more: Today.com: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjSgMWY6qzjAhVFJ80KHVGOBMIQzPwBegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.today.com%2Fpopculture%2Flucie-arnaz-reveals-tidbits-5-her-mom-s-classic-i-t157873&psig=AOvVaw0NDqqg08yUBymcgju1p0kL&ust=1562933245562901 A lengthy interview with Closer Magazine. I love that the first thing she says is “They had a great divorce” after last year’s “horrible divorce” misquote. https://www.closerweekly.com/posts/lucille-ball-and-desi-arnazs-daughter-talks-legacy-of-i-love-lucy/
  8. I remember TV Guide “Jeered” Just Shoot Me for using a 50 year old laugh track.
  9. I watched Ricky Needs an Agent, my vote for funniest I Love Lucy episode, and wondered why a picture of Joan Crawford and Harry Morgan in Torch Song is in Ricky's scrapbook.
  10. LOOK cover girl Zizi Jeanmaire is still alive at 95.
  11. Here's Lucy guest star and ratings rival Arte Johnson has died at the age of 90.
  12. Wildcat orchestrator Sid Ramin has died at 100. https://variety.com/2019/music/obituaries-people-news/sid-ramin-oscar-winning-composer-arranger-dies-at-100-1203258793/
  13. Lucy reunited with Kay Kyser and his daughter.
  14. From the Wikipedia page of Gloria Wood (“Tiny”), who appeared in a string of fifth season Here’s Lucy episodes: The source for this was an article about Gloria from BING Magazine (Gloria worked with Bing Crosby a lot). I never heard Kirby Furlong was dubbed. If there was dubbing, I would think she just filled in certain notes or perhaps this was a Lisa Kirk-type rumor.
  15. What a life she has led! She made her film debut in 1935 - 84 years ago - in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Her love interest in the film, Ross Alexander, died 82 years ago!
  16. When Lucie made the announcement of the impending birth a few months ago, she said it was Joe and his girlfriend.
  17. For the second time in a month, Lucie has become a grandmother! Joe Luckinbill’s daughter Eliza Grace was born this morning!
  18. In Ricky and Fred are TV Fans, I love how Lucy snips her scissors at Sergeant Frank Nelson when they are released.
  19. I watched the four broken leg story arc episodes, which are all great episodes of the series. I never noticed before that in Harrison Carter, Male Nurse, on her dresser, Lucy has a framed picture of her and the kids dressed as “Ma Parker,” “Herman,” and “Mildred!”
  20. Lucy Gives Eddie Albert the Old Song and Dance is a top ten favorite for me. You have great observations. There’s a little moment I love in the office with Lucy and Eddie where she affectionately touches his jacket as he’s talking to her. They worked so well together. I always wondered if Jerry Hausner’s “Jimmy” character was supposed to be Sid Gould as Sam and Sid was unavailable. (Doing what? I have no idea.) But I recently saw the original script to the episode and it was always Jimmy. And how I would have loved to have seen “Crime and Punishment!”
  21. Fathom Events will be screening five colorized I Love Lucy episodes plus a featurette on the colorization process at movie theaters across the country August 6!
  22. The Facts of Life made $3.2 million. Variety had it in 30th place on the box office rankings for 1961. The Ballad of Josie was the only Doris Day film to actually lose money. It did not get a wide release. When NBC broadcast the movie, it was only two years old. The NBC showing was the highest rated program of the week! It’s competition on CBS: The Doris Day Show! It was a rerun and the final showing in its original Tuesday night time slot.
  23. 96 year old Best Foot Forward star Tommy Dix with Michael Feinstein.
  24. Kieth was Lucie’s manager and best friend for decades. Sadly, after struggling with health issues, he took his own life in 2005.
