Trivia

The script to this movie had been around for years at MGM. It was originally going to be a movie for William Powell and Myrna Loy. A couple years later it was planned for Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. However both projects fell through and the script was forgotten about. Years later Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz showed interest in making another movie and they picked this script for their next movie. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) Desi Arnez comes home from work and pauses by a table and lamp to clandestinely listen to his wife and a couple invited to dinner before announcing that he is home. A few minutes later, a front shot of Desi reveals an open, wrought iron partition with a clear view of the front door and table that he was standing by, indicating his presence would have been evident from the moment he entered the house.

Lame Comedy
2 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Although "The Long, Long Trailer" is an average film, it seems like a classic next to this anemic followup by Lucy and Desi, their second feature film during the run of "I Love Lucy." Lucy has a guardian angel who only she can see and she claims he looks like James Mason, which seems reasonable as he is played by James Mason. Lucy and Desi try to make the most of it, but the magic of the TV show is missing, thanks to a lame script about insecticides. Mason looks bemused, probably wondering what the heck he's doing in this movie. The cast features Schafer ("Gilligan's Island") as a meddling cousin and Kulp ("Beverly Hillbillies") as an impertinent maid.
