great special, 15 September 2001

i remember this special, almost anything with lucy i can remember. i have this special uncut on video, it was given to me by a new friend. i think this was a great special. it was the last time lucy and vivan vance worked together. vivan became ill during the week and the night they taped the show. in a book i read eve arden was in the audience, and when lucy made her appearance on stage she went right over to eve and gave her a hug. the special was written by her original writers and the first i love lucy director directed this special also.

i think its a very funny show, ive seen it several times since i got the tape, and ive even showed it to friends, and they also liked it.

it was also good seeing lucy work with gale gordon, mary wickes and mary jane croft again
