Another thing Gary Morton told her not to do, and the one time she didn't listen. Sigh.
Who is the crazy blonde panelist who is not Arlene Francis?
R3, that's Faye Emerson, who, among other things, was once a daughter-in-law to Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt.
It's unusual to see a TV show from that era that is advertising a product that is still in existence and successful.

Wow. An interesting tidbit about Faye Emerson from wikipedia: She died in 1983 at the age of sixty-five of stomach cancer in Deià, Majorca, a village favored by retired artists and entertainers. For years she lived there with Anne Roosevelt, the divorced first wife of Elliott's brother John Aspinwall Roosevelt.
Lucy had the most glorious handwriting.
R2 I don't think she even knew Gary Morton at that time.
Why are her teeth black?
Lucy must have been a real trooper to make a live appearance on WML on her one night off from singing and dancing in Wildcat 8 performances a week.
In the 1950s Faye Emerson was one of the biggest stars on TV and one of the most admired women in America, though she mostly just played herself on talk shows and quiz shows.
Today she is completely forgotten.
I still know the entire score of Wildcat by heart, learned it as a kid acting out Lucy's part all the time. Ya think my parents had a clue, lol.

That's some mid-atlantic accent!
nobody could compare with Lucille Ball.
She seems sad in that clip. Wildcat wore her OUT and she left early due to illness and fatigue.
