Lucy is as energetic as ever but the material here is terribly thin and exacerbated by late 60's tricksy photography; all jump cuts and stop motion nonsense......directed by Richard Lester it ain't. It is a lame excuse to build a 50 minute show around the talents(?!) of Anthony Newley. Newley had a questionable charm which, when stretched to the running time of this TV special, wears extremely thin and swiftly irritating. James Robertson Justice and Wilfrid Hyde White are both grossly underused and I searched for the wonderful Robert Morley in vein. If you're a fan of Lucy, look elsewhere as you shall feel starved of her wonderfulness after watching this disappointing missed opportunity to highlight one of the most ebullient and exciting comediennes ever!
