    @MsDisneylandlover Don’t kid yourself; there are many, many black and other races of people who love Lucy. In that regard, you are far from unique.

  2. walwaad says:

    @store275 Remember, Ricky worked at a nightclub (“The Tropicana”) in New York City; thus, he probably didn’t go to bed at 9p.m.

    @maryrose707 This pilot was filmed in March 1951. As you can tell from her costume, Lucy is very pregnant with her baby daughter, Lucie.

    @jeffdon4 I think so;

    Lucie was born on 7/17/51, but the date isn’t mentioned on the video, is it…

    wasnt this right after lucille had Lucie arnaz?

    I LOVE how the beginning of the introduction is the guy when he’s old and you can hear his voice change back to the original intro. I don’t know why I love it so much. It makes me think of the connection between now, when I live, and back then when Lucy was young and beautiful and the episodes were new.

    i am so very luck to have the entire series on dvd.
    i love you Lucy

  21. Firegirlable says:

    Wasn’t she pregnant at the time

  22. tricianfred says:

    I’m shocked the censors let him take his shirt off like that, I would have thought that would have been taboo back then…I’m glad the actual show was done differently from this pilot, but that’s the case with most shows! So glad I Love Lucy was such a success and thank goodness both Desi and Lucy had the forethought to have the show filmed in actual film instead of the other stuff they were using then, because of that we can watch these shows on t.v. or youtube or DVD/VHS over and over again!
