Notes:

  • The second of the two "Opening Night" clips (photo, right) was a "recreation" of sorts of the "heavy headdress" scene from "Lucy Gets in Pictures," a 1955 episode of I Love Lucy. Lucille Ball and Lou Krugman recreate the scene, almost word for word.


  • Lucie Arnaz and Jimmy Garrett are interviewed by writer and Hollywood-historian Tony Maietta. Tony is co-author (with Jeffrey Vance) of "Douglas Fairbanks" (University of California Press, 2009).
