Brock Posted September 20, 2011 Report Share Posted September 20, 2011 While browsing at my local bookstore tonight I found a magazine called Shock Cinema -- apparently it has been around since 1990 but this is the first time I've seen it on Canadian newstands -- featuring a new interview with Clint Walker! In the interview, he talks about working on The Lucy Show: Scream Cinema: You also did some comedy on television such as a 1963 episode of The Jack Benny Show as well as two episodes of The Lucy Show: “Lucy and the Sleeping Beauty” and “Lucy and Clint Walker. Clint: I really enjoyed working with Jack. We were both born in Illinois and had worked at sea. He climbed up to me to look into my eyes. He put one foot on one of my knees, got me round the neck, then he put his other foot on my other knee, and looks me in the eyes saying, “You know, he does have blue eyes!” I had no idea he was going to do that. He sure had a lot of confidence in me. Lucille Ball was a pleasure to work with. In one episode we were going to have a date and I’d have no sleep the night before. So I’m leaning up against a big post in her apartment and said something like, “It wouldn’t be a good idea to wake me up if I fall asleep, since I have martial arts training and I could be very dangerous if I wake up suddenly.” Anyway, I fall asleep on her couch with my head on her leg. Then suddenly I wake up and kicked one end of the couch so it collapses, and then the other. That was a very funny episode and Lucille Ball was great to work with. In the interview he also talks extensively about his work in Cheyenne, The Dirty Dozen, Night of the Grizzly, The Ten Commandments, as well as working with Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Cecil B. DeMille, and Tony Randall. It’s a great read! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
