When show producers and Desi Arnaz first hired Vivian Vance Lucy was very unhappy with the choice, complaining that Ethel was supposed to be frumpy and old, while Vance was actually younger than ball and not frumpy at all. After their first episode of filming Lucy walked right up to Vivian and yanked the false eye lashes right out of her eyes in front of audience and crew yelling "I'm the only one who wears false eye lashes on this set!". Vivian Vance complained to a friend about the incident later; but she said "If this show becomes a hit I'm going to learn to love this bitch!" Indeed she did, and the two eventually became very close, working together for thirteen years old both The Lucy Show and I Love Lucy. Eventually, according to Lucie Arnaz, Viv became like a family member, and even lived with Lucy and her family for stretches at a time, just like she did on The Lucy Show! See more »
"The Lucy Show" - A Comedy Classic That Should Be Brought To DVD In 2006 By Individual Seasons
I think that "The Lucy Show" should be brought to DVD and released by individual seasons. Paramount Home Video owns the rights to "The Lucy Show" and it would be great if we can have season 1 sometime in 2006. "The Lucy Show" was an excellent sitcom. It ran for six seasons on CBS-TV in the 1960's (1962-1968). It was never out of the top 10 shows during its six-season run. It was the number two show during the 1967-68 season. It earned Lucille Ball four Emmy nominations and two wins for Best Actress In A Leading Role In A Comedy Series during the 1966-67 and 1967-68 TV seasons. I will say that the first three years with Vivian Vance were the best; but the remaining three seasons were just as good. This show established Lucille Ball as the Queen of Comedy and the First Lady of Television. There were 156 episodes produced and when Lucy sold Desilu to Paramount; "The Lucy Show" went with it along with two outstanding TV specials: The Lucille Ball Comedy Hour (1964) w/Bob Hope as guest and "Lucy In London" (1966) which I think was Lucy's best TV special. (I hope that these specials eventually make it to DVD) Unfortunately, the episodes of "The Lucy Show" that are out now on DVD are bootleg copies. There are 30 episodes that are public domain and the quality of the DVDs are not that great. Two episodes are from season one, 21 episodes from season five and seven episodes from season six. I would love to see an officially authorized release of "The Lucy Show" released season by season just like the way Paramount released "I Love Lucy." I love "I Love Lucy" but fans of Lucille Ball would love to see all her shows on DVD. She was one of a kind and a great comedy actress. Till today, there is not one actress on TV or in the movies that can doe what she did on television for over 23 years. PLEASE PUT THE LUCY SHOW ON DVD!
