At the time of the film’s release, I Love Lucy was about to start its third year and was the highest rated show on television. This film was made clearly made to capitalize on their success, and puts a lot of effort into mirroring the formula that made their show so popular.

What The Long, Long Trailer has that the TV show does not is Technicolor, outdoor locations and a variety of locales. What it lacks? Just about everything that »
