A ship wheel sconce seen in Woody Allen's movie, Irrational Man, looked vaguely familiar - where had I seen it before? I had been watching reruns of I Love Lucy and there it was, a wall light on Lucy Ricardo's kitchen just like it.

"Lucy is quite a girl. She's been my
wife for ten years and I should know."
IT DOESN'T surprise me at all that so many people seem to
love Lucy. After all, Lucy — also known as Lucille Ball Arnaz
— is quite a girl. She's been my wife for over ten years now
and I should know.
Lucy and I have had a strange kind of life together. It's been
full of laughs — and some disappointments. But we wouldn't have
wanted it any other way. We're both glad, however, that a
certain TV show called "I Love Lucy" came along and was

When Lucy told Ricky their home could be beautified from the floor up - he looked interested. Lucy showed him! The windup was The "I LOVE LUCY Home".

Priceless color footage taken by an audience member.
This short 8 mm Color film Footage was filmed by an audience member of "I Love Lucy", on the evening of October 12, 1951, at Sound Stage #2 of Desilu Studios, Hollywood, California.
The episode being filmed was Episode 6 of Season One, "The Audition".( It was a remake of "I Love Lucy" pilot episode, which was presumed lost until 1990.)
Although many people who tried to capture the filming, Jess Oppenheimer, the producer and writer of "I Love Lucy", prohibited it, because of the risk of leaking it. Because of this, this footage is the only surviving material of "Behind-the-Scenes" of this legendary sitcom. (It is said that Desi Arnaz filmed some filming scenes using his own 8 mm movie camera, but it is not proven.)
Of all four main stars, Vivian Vance does not in this footage. Jess Oppenheimer, and renouned cameraman, Karl Freund, are seen briefly.
