    She is my all time favorite actress. Beautiful, talented, funny, witty, honest…she is the best. Thanks for this Lucy interview with Merv from 1973, I was 14 years old at the time and it’s nice to see it again.

    “Did a man say, ‘Make her a star?’”
    “Nah, he said, ‘Make her!’”

    Three hundred years later, I still remember howling at that line.

    she mentions she is in love with the whole human race… it is safe to say the WHOLE human race is also in love with her.

    Interviews were’nt as staged as they are today. Lucy probably drove over to Merv’s set in her own car and just kept her purse. There is an interview (Dick Cavett) w/Bette Davis and she comes in w/her purse and gloves on-like she just got out of a cab in NYC.
