|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!
