Ricky grows a mustache to get an acting job in a movie. Lucy doesn't like it, so she wears a fake beard and mustache she gets from Fred. The adhesive is so old, it won't come off.

When Ricky (Desi Arnaz
) is trying to impress Mr. Murdoch with his show business scrapbook, he says that his first show was "Too Many Girls". This was, in fact, the name of the first and only Broadway show that Desi Arnaz
was in, which ran on Broadway from Oct. 18, 1939 - May 18, 1940. It had music by Richard Rodgers
and Lorenz Hart
. The charming, dashing young Cuban and this show are partially credited with starting a Latin dance craze of "Conga" dancing in the USA at that time. Arnaz was also brought to Hollywood to make the film version at RKO, Too Many Girls
(1940), which starred Lucille Ball
. This was how the two met. See more
