The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day has got some ‘splainin to do!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
It’s not often we feature TV here, but I quite dig this shot from the set of I Love Lucy. It’s a nicely framed photograph, for one, crisp and clear, but I dig the action. It seems to sum up Ricky and Lucy’s relationship just in composition and body language.
So, it passed the Quint test and now you’ll have it for your eyeballs below.
Enjoy! Click to embiggen!
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As your attorney I advise you to check out tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic!

It's the funniest fucking shit ever. They're having to describe what's going on because you don't see or hear the fight.

I'm no Lucy expert, but I believe from the youthful appearance of them both, and the odd set (which didn't appear in the series) and Lucy's unusual hairdo, I think this might be from the original pilot episode, which was lost for decades and finally found about 10 years back or so - any experts can confirm?

the Ricky and Lucy go to Hollywood episodes. Lucy probably is all dolled up because Ricky has an audition and "shee wans to bee inda show."

that may have been good for its time, but has become ridiculous by today's standards. sitcoms as a whole need to be rethought. move away from a couple or group of couples getting together and find something new. here's my sitcom pitch: two ex-astronauts work in a bread factory. did i mention this was during the atkins diet craze? cause it is. how will they get out of this one? this crap writes itself...

And I liked The Long Long Trailer. Got some good physical comedy in it.

Lucille Ball was not a natural redhead. I forget if she was blonde or brunette. There's too many episodes to pick a favorite. Here's Lucy was pretty good. Don't forget that we owe Desi and Lucy for greenlighting Star Trek. No one would touch it except for their production company. As a matter of fact I think the network didn't want it, but there was something in their contract that said they could pick a show of the network would air it. I could be wrong, but that aside it was their production company that gave Roddenberry his shot.

I'd really like to see some BTS of Murray's take on Thompson.

Seems like perfect feeding ground for you. Nagging stereotypical idiot screaming, crying meddling wife. Macho man Ricky pushing her away all the time. Have at it girl FYI. My wife has a lesbian sister with a pack of similar gal pals buddies attached. I consider them all friend fyi. Nice people. They were all reading a few of your rants lastnight and are convinced you are just doing this to push buttons and tick off geeks for entertainment. Job accomplished!

I still crack up when I catch these on television here and there. I'm 36 so I remember them as re-runs during the day but they were great. As re-runs they are better than most of the shit in television now. And they remind me of an America my generation and my kids' generation will never know. A better America with better people.

...is that, when Lucy performs her comedy bit with the cello (the same bit, BTW, that she actually performed when she was in vaudeville), you can hear Desi laughing offstage. There's no mistaking that distinctive laugh. Years later, after Lucy and Desi divorced, he paid her a visit one day at her house. After he left, Lucy told her daughter: "There goes the love of my life. But I just couldn't take it anymore."
