Neil Posted September 11, 2012 Report Share Posted September 11, 2012 AND it makes the cover no less, with pictures: "LIZ AND DICK HATED LUCY" sub-headline "Burton's vicious Blast!" The story recounts Burton's impatience with Lucy during the filming of THAT show. It's so easy for people to take Burton's side, but celebrity or not, Liz and Dick had to understand that Lucy was in charge. The only thing current about this article is that it states that Burton's diaries will be published in the fall, where "he devoted 4 pages written about his disgust". I thought they already had, but maybe this is the complete version. Burton, by most accounts, was a hard person to work with and was certainly not used to what had to be accomplished in 4 days to prepare a half hour show for filming in front of an audience. Liz and Dick were most likely used to being pampered. The 'news' article doesn't stop there but quotes other Lucy-hating stars: Jack Benny, John Wayne, Dean Martin and.... Joan Crawford! Other than Joan, the main complaint is that she shoved them on to their marks, but the general tone of the article as you might guess is anti-Lucy.
