  • Trivia

    • On the day this episode was to be filmed before a live audience, the Los Angeles area newspapers featured headlines that Lucille Ball had been questioned recently by the House Unamerican Activities Committee. The testimony before HUAC was from a most innocent circumstance from some 20 years before concerning her elderly grandfather, Fred C. Hunt, whom Lucille Ball had always considered to be a father figure. She had been cleared of any wrongdoing by HUAC but new newspapers wouldn't print that fact till the next day.

      In fact, plainclothes police officers were sitting in the stands in case anything got out of hand at the taping.

      That night, Desi Arnaz, during his usual audience warm-up, made a fine speech asking the audeince to wait till the next day to reserve judgement about what they may have read about his wife. When he introduced Lucille Ball the crowd roard with applause in support for her. "We love you, Lucy!" On with the show!
