  1. Thank you for posting this information. I've wondered for years who this actress was, since she appeared in so many episodes of "Lucy."

  3. WOW! I have been searching for her name for YEARS! She is also in the episode in Hollywood, with William Holden, sitting in the booth to his left. And as a neighbor, when they are searching for Madame X, plus numerous additional I Love Lucy episodes. Thanks!

  4. She also appeared in some Andy Griffith episodes. Seems like when they needed a crowd of people, Hazel was there. I remember 2 episodes, the one where Ellie runs for town council and the episode where Barney arrests everyone.
