In his book I Loved Lucy, author Lee Tannen remembers attending the taping of "Gypsy in My Soul". Tannen recalls that the taping itself was not a success, with Lucy flying into a rage when MacLaine came back from lunch a few minutes late. Both retreated to their dressing rooms to cool off.

I remember this video as one that gave me the feeling of what a musical of TV-special really has to be.
I do remember this TV-special as wonderful entertainment with beautiful songs. I hoped that somebody still had this music, because It was never put on any CD. I wonder who ever wrote such a beautiful song as "She's a star", clearly reminding of movies like "Sunset Boulevard". Shirley MacLaine is one of the most charming actresses of this century. Really fascinating what she does in this televison-special.
