Trivia

A telephone caller (also named Lucy) asks Lucy how she feels about following in the footsteps of Angela Lansbury in the role of Mame and how she felt about Rex Reed's negative review. Lucille Ball says she hasn't read it but that she and Reed are friends. Lucy says that she told the studio for several years that Lansbury should do the film version and was told that Lansbury didn't want to do it because she was tending to her son who was very ill in Ireland.
