blitnowink Posted June 9, 2011 Report Share Posted June 9, 2011 As many of the "die-hard" Lucy fans know, many of Lucille Ball's specials/TV show episodes/interviews/lectures have surfaced, well... unofficially, let's just say. And although those seventh generation copies may be just barely watchable, I'm still grateful for their presence because as crappy as they may look or sound, they do provide fans with a more complete look at Lucille Ball's body of work. But let's face it; we need an official upgrade on some of these Lucy appearances. So which of the "unofficially" leaked Lucille Ball material would you like to see released officially on CD or DVD/Blu-Ray/Downloadable Format? AND/OR What are some Lucy bits and pieces you have never seen anywhere and would just KILL to watch, even if only on a shitty iPod screen? Plus, the media LOVES to slap the label of LOST onto any resurfaced clip that hasn't been aired for more than ten years, but was never truly lost in the first place. Is there anything of Lucy's that has been rumoured or even confirmed to be LOST for good that you would love to see anyway? My "holy grail" Lucy items would have to include (in no particular order...I'll be sure to think of more later): The Good Years (1962) TV Special Let's Talk To Lucy (1962) Radio Show ~ All Episodes (*not sure if all exist, though*) The Merv Griffin Show (1974) @ the première of Mame Mame (1974) ~ deleted scenes &/or version that included alternate camera angles Mame (1974) ~ complete stereo soundtrack (*rumoured to have been destroyed or lost*) Mame (1974) ~ 20 minute documentary on the "Making of" the film (*rumoured to have aired on NBC in '74*) Lucy Calls the President (1977) ~ Footage of Lucille breaking character during first scene/telling audience about the loss of DeDe And finally, I really would have loved to have seen the complete/uncut I Love Lucy original 35mm film camera negatives, containing all deleted scenes, bloopers, and alternate camera angles. Sadly, I Love Lucy's film editor, Dann Cahn, and Desi Arnaz burned all of those films in 1959/1960; maintaining and storing them was costly and served no foreseeable purpose at the time.
