Did You Know?

For this movie which is set in the winter, Lucille Ball had to wear several layers of heavy clothes and as a result had to be hospitalized for dehydration. At this time her doctors also informed her that she was allergic to cigarettes, which she had been smoking for 56 years.See more »

DVD Out, 16 November 2006
Author: jsosa-1 from Chicago

This movie has been out on DVD for about a year now. You can find it most definitely at many online DVD sites. Don't expect to find it at a DVD store--if you do you'll probably pay more than you should.

Much like many have always said already, this movie is a strong vehicle for Lucy's dramatic acting. Some critics at the time ignored the film saying that they couldn't see lovable wacky Lucy as a bag lady. Their loss. The movie is touching and heartbreaking.

It's a typical made-for-TV movie which has not aged well. The acting (literally everyone except Lucy) is hard to swallow. Casting was weak. This is Lucy's show and she delivers.
