Editorial Reviews

Billboard
A fascinating look at the making of the series by its producer and head writer...[with] plenty of amusing anecdotes about the actors and their antics at work.
Booknews
Oppenheimer, producer and head writer for the comedy series, stays true to form by emphasizing the laughs behind the scenes....The volume is liberally peppered by photographs and copies of scripts.
Total TV
Offers intimate glimpses of the world's favorite redhead and of a bygone era as wide-eyed and irrepressible as Lucy herself.
TV Guide Online
A must-have for true Lucy lovers.
