  1. Congratulations to the whole Luckinbill-Conner family! Baby Jeffrey’s middle name is a wonderful tribute to Kate’s late godfather, Kieth Dodge.
  2. I find this tale very hard to believe as well. At Lucy's Museum of Broadcasting seminar, she was asked what her favorite movies were and she listed The Big Street, The Facts of Life, Yours, Mine & Ours. Audience members shouted out "Mame!" and Lucy said, "Oh, I made Mame! That's right!" Lucy then talked about how much she loved Mame. There were clearly some movies she did not care for: Critic's Choice, as you mentioned, The Magic Carpet (of course), Forever Darling, Two Smart People, and The Dark Corner. It's likely she never even saw The Dark Corner, but the experience of making it made it one of her least favorites.
  3. From GQ’s oral history of Cheers a few years ago: Here is the complete oral history:My link
  4. I never heard of Debbie impersonating Lucy in her act. With the dark wig, could she be doing Lucy as Mame? Or perhaps the seller is just mistaken. The chorus boy facing the camera is Broadway stalwart Harvey Evans.
  5. We’ve lost another television legend. https://people.com/tv/tim-conway-dies/
  6. Barbara Perry, who appeared in Lucy and Art Linkletter and Lucy Bags a Bargain, has died at 97. She also played Pickles Sorrell #1 on The Dick Van Dyke Show. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/barbara-perry-dead-actress-dick-van-dyke-show-was-97-1207532
  7. Lucy was godmother to one of Barbara Pepper’s sons too. Jack Carter looks like he’s wearing love beads from the Richard Deacon collection there.
  8. in the tour of "Kiss the Boys Goodbye"
  9. Very sad. He also produced the pilot for The Zsa Zsa Gabor Show with Lucy. Winters wrote glowingly about Lucy in his autobiography.
  10. They also ended some scenes a few second early, including Lucy saying, “This is your old chum, Lucy” to Carolyn on the telephone. The edits on this episode were pretty seamless.
  11. The Million Dollar Idea seemed to be the least edited episode I can remember. I think they only cut Dickie Davis’ commercial, Lucy and Ethel talking about buying mink coats, and Lucy counting the jars in the living room.
  12. The shots of the TV set were in the original. I think the black and white picture made them stand out more here.
  13. Interesting article on the colorization process. https://www.tvinsider.com/765643/i-love-lucy-funny-money-special-cbs-colorized/?fbclid=IwAR0yD9HDnYE9QMjoNU0Wrx9NZBngmy-8HXiwjITzCF52lByDRhZOJpslc3E I think Lucy’s colorization looks the most natural in this special so far.
  14. Vulture has an article about other TV appearances made by the I Love Lucy cast. https://www.vulture.com/article/the-lost-adventures-of-the-i-love-lucy-cast.html
  15. Lucy was in four episodes. The first three were released on the first box set of the “lost” episodes and the fourth was on the 50th anniversary collection set.
  16. Georgia always had lines like “when you get to be our age...” with Betty on Hot in Cleveland. She was 27 years younger than Betty and 2 years older than Wendie Malick! Georgia was also brilliant on stage in the avant-garde Off Broadway drama “John” a few years ago. I wish the Times obit mentioned she won the coveted Obie Award for her performance, as well as her BAFTA nomination for the movie Taking Off.
  17. I had the great pleasure of seeing Georgia several times on stage, most recently less than a year ago in the musical "Half Time." She was outstanding in her role, in which she did a hip hop number!
  18. I'm stunned. Georgia Engel has passed away at the age of 70. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/obituaries/georgia-engel-dead.html What a singular talent!
