Never heard anything good about Philip Ober.

He er. Vivian showed was married to Vivian Vance when she was on "I Love Lucy".

After that Vivian co-starred on "The Lucy- Desi Comedy Hour".

Then she co-starred and guest- starred on "The Lucy Show".

Yes, Vivian Vance and Philip Ober is correct.

"  According to a quote from Lucille Ball in Boze Hadleigh's "Hollywood Babble-On", Ober physically abused Vivian Vance, and one time when Vance came to the set with a "shiner", Ball told her that if she [Vance] wouldn't divorce [Ober], then she [Ball] would."

Vivian divorced Ober on the grounds of spousal abuse. They were married for 18 years. Philip Ober appeared on I Love Lucy a couple of times, most remembered would be when he played the role of Dore Schary.

Your thread Princess

Cinemaman, I think that some people may have looked at the question and thought it was either too easy or too long and they lost interest.  I have been guilty of posting overly long questions myself.  Perhaps if we made them a bit shorter, we might get more of a response.
