Personal Quote:

[on working on "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" in 1957 ] I was so young and caught in the middle of America's favorite couple breaking up. Psychologically, I didn't know how to handle it because I was in the middle. They all were wonderful people but naturally there was tension. See more »
