Oh, Those Traveling Props!

WOW!!!!! What a find! I envy whoever gets ahold of this.

 

I'm amazed at the attention to detail; that Lucy actually wrote a note to the character. I'm wondering if Lillian came about because she misremembered the name and it's simply what she wrote down. Also, how neat to finally know the character's address after all these years.

 

Definitely an amazing find.  (Bravo, Jimmy!))  But do we really know Lillian's address?  It's clear that she lives on E. 67th St., but what is that street number to the left of the "E"?  Is that 1413?  If so, that would put her way over on the other side of the East River, (outside of Manhattan), somewhere in Queens on a street that isn't even called 67th St.

It's either 1413 or 1423. The eBay listing put it as 1423.

423 was certainly on Lucy's mind when they filmed the episode.

 

I'd love to know the provenance of this!

Me too!

Well as the addresses in that part of Manhattan only go up to about the 400 block, a 1423 address is pretty incredible.  I think this postcard ultimately got stamped "return to sender, address unknown."

Well, fictional addresses were hardly revolutionary on that show, if Fred and Ethel owning a building in the middle of the East River was any indication :)

Oh, those travelling ...pieces of stock footage. I’m just watching Cluny Brown and Jennifer Jones and Charles Boyer are going to Peter Lawford’s pad, which looks suspiciously like Sir Clive Richardson’s place — complete with the three swans a-swimming.

We’ve been briskly pushing our way through Roseanne in preparation for the revival, and I’ve noticed that a lot of food items seem to belong to the same “brand” of potato chip that Curtis so enjoyed (and Lucy destroyed!) The packaging always has basic white lettering and a black background- I most recently saw an orange juice carton with the label. Was this a legitimate brand in the mid-late 80s or just communal, royalty-free packaging for sitcoms?

The book Lucy Carter's hospital roommate is reading was authored by Henry Fonda's character from the 1964 film The Best Man.

I'm thinking they used the same prop house. :peachonthebeach:

I guess it wasn't exactly a conversation starter in the hospital.

From a 1952 episode of The Red Skelton Show:

Was this a common doorframe back in the day? I have no idea how it could end up on the Skelton show, which was on NBC at the time. Most of the show was filmed at CBS Television City, but I don't know for sure where its first two seasons were shot. The door is unequivocally the same as the Ricardo's, with similar "shades", and it's even placed at a similar angle on the set. Does anybody have any idea what the heck could be going on here?

I never noticed before that there's a big portrait of Lucy as Madame Du Barry in the Desilu Workshop players dressing room in The Desilu Revue.

I have a feeling the round shelf behind Eve appeared on an ILL episode, but can't place it. Any thought?

The picture might have disappeared at the whim of TinyPic, but the shelf in question is just inside the salon door on the right side in The Black Wig.

Burns & Allen not only borrowed Ross Elliott, but also their wall-hangings:

Ah, Mary has that picture.

The iconic streetscape painting behind the Ricardo piano in the first apartment can be seen behind Joan Crawford’s shoulder in Sudden Fear, as she’s introduced to Gloria Grahame’s Irene for the first time at the reception.
