My Favorite Husband, I Love Lucy and … Us.

7 thoughts on “My Favorite Husband, I Love Lucy and … Us.”

  1. Great Lucy primer, Kitty. Found Oppenheimer’s memories and observations very interesting. I have to wonder if Richard Denning had regrets (that Lucy insisted on Desi) once “I Love Lucy” became a runaway TV success.

    1. I wouldn’t worry too much about Richard Denning. He seems to have had a good enough career (one can’t say great in comparison to Lucy’s) in film and TV with continuous work throughout the 50’s and 60’s. I remember him from repeats of the b&w series “Mr. and Mrs. North” on TV. He made enough money to retire to Hawaii, and then was called out of retirement to play the Governor for over 60 episodes of “Hawaii 5-0”.

  2. I love that story about Jack Benny’s team and Lucy trading off “going to school.” What a wonderful, one of a kind place to learn! Great post.

  3. You continually amaze me. Thank you so much for participating in the blogathon (and for your effusive praise–you truly flatter us!). I really enjoyed your look at My Favorite Husband. Jess Oppenheimer was truly a great producer and writer, and it’s so great to see you giving him the credit he justly deserves–after all, Lucy herself gave much of the credit for her television success to her talented team of writers.

  4. Wonderful blog or as Lucy would say “Wondahful.” Loved the quotes from “My Favorite Husband” and the Jack Benny story. As always, your blog is a treat to read!!!

    xoxo – your crazy Lucy obsessed friend, Lauren
