Brock Posted January 11, 2014 Report Share Posted January 11, 2014 Post all of your burning "unsolved" mysteries which will likely always go unanswered: Who were the "Pleasant Peasant" girls in real life and how were they cast? They were perfection. Just when did Lucy cross paths with former dancer Hazel Pierce and how did she become a part of the Lucy family? Just how did Lucy and Desi come to the understanding that Doris Singleton was worth that little extra something every time she appeared on the show. Of course she was worth every extra penny she cost, but when did they realize this obvious fact? Were any other actresses given serious consideration to portray Mrs. McGillicuddy? Of course, no one else could play her but I'd love to see who was in the casting folder. Just how suggestive was the aborted Lucy Plays Basketball? Was Lucy, The Cement Worker cobbled together from ideas and pages leftover from other scripts? Out of all the possibilities, why did Bob and Madelyn settle on the unique talents of Dorothy Lloyd ("Mercedes Minch") as Lucy's opening act in Lucy Tells The Truth? Who was the first person to take Viv's gag contract from Dinah! as gospel truth? (Causing no end of misery to Lucy fans the world-over) Who is responsible for making the most famous, albeit fake, Ricky Ricardo quote of "You've got some splainin' to do" enter the popular lexicon? Just a few that come to mind. What are some of yours? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
