Neil Posted September 19, 2013 Report Share Posted September 19, 2013 Since Barbra was a guest on "Let's Talk to Lucy", she qualifies as a co-star/hort. I wonder if Lucy ever approached her to be on her show. Sometimes episodes were scripted with some guest in mind and altered to fit the guest they eventually got, so I can see "Lucy and Petula Clark" as a Streisand episode. After "Burtons" was such a huge success, Lucy approached many huge stars (Mae West, for one) who didn't do TV, but never again got a guest as exclusive as them. Supposedly "Ginger Rogers Comes to Tea" was run by Ingrid Bergman and Bette Davis. Though the whole episode is a delight, it wouldn't be the same without the spontaneous charleston at the end, probably my favorite performance piece of the entire series. Someone CLEVER should do one of these for Lucy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
