Did You Know?


A close-up shot of Lucy and Ethel reveals that the backdrop of Hollywood outside their suite at "The Beverly Palms Hotel" is only a still photograph since there is no traffic, except for a single truck in the middle of the street which is not moving. Also, flags are not waving, although they are completely unfurled. See more »

The Indignity Of It All
21 September 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

As if her experiences with William Holden and Richard Widmark weren't enough Lucille Ball goes through another trial in getting to meet Cornel Wilde who happens to be staying at her hotel. They must have been fumigating his house.

This series of shows from Hollywood where a different name film star of the time makes an appearance seen today are a great justification as to why movie star celebrities take such precautions to avoid fans.

In addition to roping in Vivian Vance in her loopy schemes in the Hollywood episodes she has poor Bob Jellison totally buffaloed. Jellison who looks like a pint size Lou Costello is one poor hapless fool who probably should have lost his job.

Poor Cornel Wilde is looking for a little peace and quiet and this crazy redheaded even invades the sanctity of his shower. The indignity of it all.
