“The Quiz Show”
Original Air Date:
November 12, 1951
The Week’s WTFacts:
- Vivian Vance’s husband at the time plays Arnold (Lucy’s “first husband” who appears last in the episode).
- Freddie Fillmore – the sleazy quiz show host – will be back for later episodes.
- Following the devastating actor drought of 1952, actor Frank Nelson reappears both as Freddy Fillmore and as other characters, and Vance’s husband Philip Ober reappears in a later episode playing a different character.
- Lucille Ball isn’t wearing her false eyelashes for the seltzer spraying scene and it’s totally fug.
See you Friday!
