Lucille Ball reportedly almost choked to death while filming the grape stomping scene in the episode “Lucy’s Italian Movie,” though no one noticed until after the scene was completed. | 24 Interesting Tidbits You May Not Have Known About “I Love Lucy”
I Love Lucy Cake. Love this! How 'bout an 'I Love Lucy' marathon party?? How fun would that be? Everyone would dress in vintage '50s, use snack sets, drink martinis... Play bridge? How fun would that be?
This is the only scene in all of the I Love Lucy series in which Desi and Lucy shy/turn away from the camera; they were both genuinely crying and it wasn't scripted. The episode is called "Lucy is Enceinte" (Lucy is Expecting). This is the scene where Lucy tells Ricky she's pregnant; Lucy was pregnant in real life as well, and that's why it was such an emotional scene for them. My favorite I Love Lucy moment.
