Oh but I have the election in the bag as I've been courting Ruth Knickerbocker for months now.

She's all yours, buddy! ;)

Ooooooh, involuntary "SHUDDER", just realized how OLD Ruth's mom would be now, she's probably dating Larry King.  And calls Betty White "KID".

Dating gossip on Al and Orson.  I wonder how true this Cleo story is since they didn't even get her name correct.

Cleo's stage name at the time was Cleo Manning. She and Artie Auerbach did eventually marry. It's interesting that they describe Lucy as a blonde when she most certainly was not in 1938. They also got Jack Haley's name wrong.

Well I'll be sheep dipped.  I didn't know any of that.  Had no idea Cleo had a stage name, although that would make sense given the complexity of her last name.  I don't know if I even knew she was married before Kenny.  Then of the 3 "siblings" Lucy had the least amount of marriages.  I figured that Jack's name was wrong and that's who they were trying to mention.

Artie Auerbach worked with Lucy on Phil Baker and Jack Haley's radio shows. Desi wrote in his book that when Grandpa Hunt was re-introduced to Kenny Morgan after had married Cleo, he said, "What happened to Artie?"

Artie made frequent appearances on The Jack Benny Program as the character Mr. Kitzel up until his death in 1957.

 

Cleo and Artie married in 1938 and were divorced by 1942 since that's when she married Kenny Morgan.

Speaking of Jack Benny, besides Milt Josefsberg, Harry, who else worked for my two favorite comedians of all time.  Saw loads of familiar names when watching the various Jack Benny Christmas programs but did not jot them down.  Do YOU know?

Two articles talking about when Lucy got stranded in Milwaukee and Desi calling her to get to NYC so he could marry her.  

 

Looks like Lucy has a new occupation yet again in this first one. Nov 18, 1940

Interesting stuff in this article.  Wonderful opinions on Jean Stapleton, Bea Arthur, Joan Rivers, and Carol Burnett.  Lucy also mentions a bit about Gary and Lenny and also his involvement in the studio when he started.   I got the biggest laugh out of her reaction to Barbara Walters.

This article is wondaful! Thanks!

 

I love her comments on Baba Wawa -- and I'm sure Lucy only turned off Blazing Saddles once Lili Von Schtupp showed up.

This is one of my favorite interviews with Lucy. The Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts in New York has the actual audio recording and it's incredible.

She was right never cared for that movie, only laughed once, the farting scene at the campfire.

I think i've read that before but you're right Harry, absolutely terrific interview.  Funny how she would say she loved or hated something, in this case, All in the Family and then would later reverse herself completely on the same subject.

Lucy said in this conversation that she hated the show when it first started because she thought Archie never got his comeuppance. She said after the first season of 13 episodes that was changed and she liked the show much more.

Thanks for that, knew about the first part, but not the second.  No wonder she was able to pose with Norman Lear at the TV Hall of Fame inductions without wincing, LOL!

To be honest, it's probably my least favourite of all Brooks' films -- but a phenomenal cast.

True and i also love all the other Mel Brooks films.  Even the ones he produced like Night, Mother with Anne, a masterpiece.
