In Reply to: Mary recording her lines at home posted byBobR on April 11, 2002 at 23:02:03:
: Although I have read in various books that Mary during sometime in the 50's recorded her lines from home;what was the purpose of this and can anyone tell me how they can distinguish her being in the studio versus at being at home?
I have only been able to definitely spot one at-home recording. After the move to CBS, they had a line about actors tracking in Johnson's wax on their shoes. Mary's stand-in managed to substitute "heads" for "shoes," to the delight of the audience. When you listen to the broadcast, you can hear Mary start to say "shoes," then catch herself and "flub" the line!
