Trivia

Lucille Ball sang, danced (the Twist), and did imitations of Judy Garland, Carol Channing, and Marlene Dietrich. Three years later, Lucy Carmichael would go undercover as Carol Channing in "Lucy and the Undercover Agent" (S4;E10), dressing as Channing did in "Hello, Dolly!" In 1971, Lucy Carter dressed as Marlene Dietrich in "The Hollywood Unemployment Follies" (S3;E22) singing "Falling in Love Again (Never Wanted To)" from the 1930 German film "The Blue Angel." In that same episode there is a mannequin of Judy Garland as Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz," although no one imitates her. See more »
