About This Interview
Bob Carroll, Jr. (1918-2007) and writing partner Madelyn Pugh Davis, were interviewed for three hours in Los Angeles, CA. Davis and Carroll speak of their 50-year writing relationship that included writing for Steve Allen, as well as the decades of working with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and the classic I Love Lucy show.
When asked about working together, Madelyn said “We never had to argue about what was funny. We just argued about the temperature of the room.”
The interview was conducted by Tom Gilbert on November 24, 1997.
