Lucille Ball had quite a year in 1966. The debut of two Desilu shows now iconic Mission Impossible and Star Trek from her Desilu Studio and went to London to cash in on the "mod" scene by a hilarious Lucy In London. This was a special on CBS apart from her weekly Lucy Show and the first and only Desilu production filmed Internationally. Lucille Ball ever the professional does an fine job and in fact steals the show as always with her comedic talent. This special showcases Ms. Ball in other ways too! Lucille Ball had a great showgirl figure for a woman in her late 50's, Lucy looked awesome in this TV Special. I wish somehow Lucille Ball let that other sexy Showgirl image show more and more and forget the Lucy character. There was to be another Lucy special called Lucy of Arabia but that was postponed and then canceled when Ms. Ball left Desilu.
Soon after this special Desilu placed yet another hit dramatic show on the CBS network Mannix and then Lucille Ball filmed her long delayed pet project 'Yours Mine and Ours' moving Desilu into the film business. Yours Mine and Ours was s smash hit with Ms. Ball superb. Ms. Ball then sold her shares of Desilu for $11 Million and the studio merged into next door film studio Paramount.
Quite a Lady.
