A fond look at 1900-1914
13 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This TV special, billed as part of the TV comeback of Lucille Ball was an episodic look back at the good years of 1900-1914. I don't recall much about it. It had skits dealing with aspects of those years interspersed with commentary. I distinctly recall the ensemble counting down the years involved at the beginning, Ball hanging from a branch and falling, presumably as part of some bit about early cliffhangers, bits that mentioned the new abstract art, the beginning of the income tax and commentary at the end about how a minor news story (in the eyes of Americans), the assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand, led to WW I and the end of that era. I can't rate it, I was very young when I saw it. I thought it was fun at the time and it affected my later thinking about the era.
