Brock Posted May 16, 2012 Report Share Posted May 16, 2012 (And please leave the spanking topic at the door. ) Was Ricky Ricardo needlessly cruel? Here we have Lucy and Ethel just dying to meet movie stars...his wife even going as far as spotting Van Johnson in elevators and even offering to re-name her child in his honour, and here's Ricky hobbing with every nob who is worth hobbing with and he doesn't even throw her a bone. In lieu of letting her meet Cornel Wilde, he offers to take her to see The Big Combo. Even if it DID get wonderful reviews, he then spouts such gems as: "Oh, hello Van! How are ya, boy? and "Why don't call Duke! John Wayne. All his friends call him Duke. I had lunch with him at the studio a couple of times. He's a wonderful guy!" and "Not 'Count', 'Duke'. 'Mr. Wayne' to you." and "Oh, hi, Cornel!" So... was he cruel? Was he a show off? Discuss. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
