The Republic of LUCY
15 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An interesting Republic production of the early 50s with Eve Arden and all set in suburbia. It is like a 90 minute color episode of I LOVE LUCY with Eve instead of Lucy. If you think this sounds odd, then consider that Republic usually did not stray into unfamiliar territory from westerns, action films and serials. Research shows that the studio stepped into an A Grade league with its multi million dollar grossing blockbusters like THE QUIET MAN and SANDS OF IWO JIMA. As a result it seems that Herbert Yates, the aging studio head realized Republic might generally upgrade and start making the sort of more sophisticated sub-urban films usually from RKO (like 'SUSAN SLEPT HERE) or even MGM (a year later to make the Lucy comedy THE LONG LONG TRAILER). The income was certainly there and rentals for Republic films 1946-1953 were huge. THE LADY WANTS MINK is a very funny situation comedy about a wife breeding her own mink coat. What is fascinating from a studio film making point of view is that it displays a 'modern suburban' world constructed at Republic which shows off the studio as well with big elaborate sets and a degree of snazziness rarely on screen in a Republic film. Nice to see. It did well at the box office and played initially as a main feature, as a lot of Repubic films were double features or support pix to bigger studio releases. THE LADY WANTS MINK has a proper release all to it's lovely own.
