Did You Know?


When Lucy Collins arrives at the MGM Grand, she walks down their 'Hall of Fame' lined with illuminated posters of movie stars. Lucy pauses at posters of Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, blows kisses to Cary Grant, whose poster is alongside Grace Kelly, and gazes lovingly at posters of Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, and Ginger Rogers. Rogers played herself on a 1971 episode of "Here's Lucy." Lucy then does a 'ha-cha-cha-cha' in front of a poster of Jimmy Durante, who she disguised herself as in "Lucy Meets Harpo Marx" (S4;E28). Durante later did a brief, wordless cameo on a 1966 "Lucy Show." In a meta moment, Lucy Collins then stops and primps her hair in front of a poster of Lucille Ball. Lucy Carter also stood before a poster of Lucille Ball in "Lucy and the Andrews Sisters" (S2;E6) and later shared scenes with movie star Ball in "Lucy Carter Meets Lucille Ball" (S6;E22). Although her recent film "Mame" had been released by Warner Brothers, Lucille Ball had done several films with MGM, like "The Long, Long Trailer" (1954) and "Forever Darling" (1956). See more »

I remember many great personal moments with Dino and Lucy...As he was my uncle. Billy is Billy Hinsche;he also played and sang with the Beach Boys for many years. He, Desi, and my cousin Ricci, have also formed a group playing the old songs and doing a tribute to Dean. They play smaller venues like Henderson, Nv. outside Vegas...Lucille Ball and Dean Martin always made me laugh, there aren't many greats like them left; they are missed...I agree with the previous comment Lucy was very intelligent that's why her silly behavior was so charming. I even named my (red haired) golden retriever Lucy so smart and so silly she always made me laugh. Uncle Dean spent his off time golfing and with family.I was devastated when he and my aunt Jeanne,divorced; but they never really parted; she was with him all the way 'til the day he died.
