Lucy Gets In Pictures™
Episode #116, "Lucy Gets In Pictures™", originally aired on February 21, 1955. The Ricardos and the Mertzes are in Hollywood where Ricky, Fred, and Ethel all have parts in movies. Lucy tries to get a part herself, even going to a famous soda fountain to be discovered, but that, too fails. Finally, Ricky asks his director friend to help, and Lucy wins the role of a showgirl who, during a musical number, gets shot and dies on the staircase. Her beautiful costume includes a huge, feathered headdress, which causes her to topple down the stairs. Lucy loses her coveted role, and becomes one of the background showgirls with a smaller headdress, but she still ruins the scene. Frustrated, the director puts Lucy on a stretcher, already "dead" and covered with a sheet, when the scene begins. Wily as she is lovely, Lucy finds a way to make her presence known in the film!
