I Love Lucy Residuals

Recommended Posts

Do we have any idea how much ILL guest actors made, generally?


I stumbled across this little artefact on eBay the other day and it seems to me that Charles Winninger was still earning a pretty considerable chunk of money for a sixth run airing. I'd be curious to see his contract and how it compared to Doris Singleton, for instance, who spoke of receiving a bit more than the average guest actor. (As well she should have!)

I wonder

--if the residuals were graduated in size from 2nd to 6th run.  

--if residual payments go past the 6th run these days.

--If this was for the daytime airing or the last of the prime time I Love Lucy run in 1961.


Amazing this is almost $500 in today's dollars.
