Asked by Clark Rosenbaum in Lucille Ball, Classic Television
Why is there so much smoking in "I Love Lucy"?
Well, I Love Lucy was literally sponsored by Phillip Morris, a cigarette company. In fact, in the show’s earlier years, Phillip Morris was its only sponsor, and all of that smoking was product placement—and during commercial slots, outright advertisement from Lucy and Desi. I Love Lucy aired in the 1950s, a time when the tide hadn’t quite shifted when it came to attitudes toward smoking. Smoking prevalence only began decreasing in 1964 (seven years after I Love Lucy stopped airing) as the health risks became more apparent to the public. In 1970, cigarette advertisements were banned from radio and television altogether.

How do you dress like Lucille ball?
One way is to purchase an "I Love Lucy" dress and wig. They sell them at online party stores, as well as at the Desilu Playhouse Museum in Jamestown, NY. If you don't want to do that, you can make one at home. For the outfit, either take any polkadot dress, or dress slacks and a collared blouse. For the hair, if you're not willing to go to extremes and dye your hair red and get a perm, I'd recommend tying it in a bun, and fluffing the front with a volumnizer. Lucy had very long eyelashes, and if yours are not that long, wear fake ones. She had beautiful, plae skin, so put on foundation, or cream, or something if your skin is olive.

What happened to Lucille maxwell miller?
A friend and I were obsessed with her back in the mid to late 80's. We traced the route she drove, looked at what used to be her house, and even went to find out how much it would cost to stay at the Forty Winks Motel on Route 66 (we didn't know the reason the clerk looked strangely at us was because at the time it was a place for trysts and illicit romances). Damn, I had two little kids in the car who wanted to sleep in a tepee The last we ever heard about Lucille Maxwell Miller was that she was released from jail and then was later arrested for some petty theft shoplifting. It had a picture of her and she certainly didn't look to us like some gorgeous woman. The City of Ontario has an archival center where they may have something more current, but for now that's all I know. I do think of her now and again since I live not too far from her street and am going to dental work at the Loma Linda School of Dentistry. Hope someone else finds something on her. How old could she be now? Linda Rancho Cucamonga, CA
