Love the first one.....

Yes, just HOW lucky did Lucy get?

Dean's indulgence of this Collins fan appears on the surface to be benign.  Dancing with her is one thing. It's quite another flying her back in his private plane...at DAYBREAK?? 

Was Lucy playing Hanky Panky with a Dranky??? 

Was she able to cash in her unused bus ticket? 

Or transfer it to Gladys to travel to LA for the "Gladys Gets Lucky" special teaming her with Phil Leeds (Sid was unavailable).

Perhaps Jeannie (assuming they were still married at the time) drifted over to the "Automan" set for a little 'star-gazing' of her own...To which Liberace reacted by looking directly into the camera and screaming "CURSES!!"

Winters, Holliday compete in Arden look-a-like contest


Original script for Lucy Gets Lucky had Ball sleep with Martin. Ending changed, title didn't.
