there is more than i love Lucy here

there is also a great nod to the gay divorcée, with Erik Rhodes, who played 'Tonetti' in that movie, as a cinema verite director, and a salute to Fellini, too, with the bright blonde hair and music that emulates Nino Rota's Fellini movie scores. this is just one more great episode of a truly classic but under-appreciated great TV comedy. why do i have to have ten lines of text? because nine might not give enough praise to Joe E Ross, who played on the Phil Silvers show for Nat Hiken a few years earlier. he was also 'married' to Beatrice Pons on that show, with the same wonderful results. i know people with no sense of humor who laugh out loud when they see a car 54 episode. Jake Lamotta was on a few shows, Ossie Davis, and the great Molly Picon, as well. other plots emulated crime movies, naturally. this show is so underrated it s a crime.

Lucille, The 'Goddess'
ccthemovieman-122 August 2011
Toody in love with a "blonde goddess - Lucille!!! Yes, as wacky as that sounds that's what happens here. Expect the insane you get a normal, hilarious "Car 54, Where Are You" episode.

Tired of being ignored for the 15 years of their marriage, Lucille goes to the hairdresser's one day and changes into a blonde. It takes a while to notice, but once he does, he's going crazy and suddenly is the world's most jealous.

The real funny parts come with the rest of the squadron, who think Toody is cheating on Lucille and going out with some blonde bimbo.

All-in-all, another good show, especially if you enjoy the crazy banter back-and-forth between Joe E. Ross (Toody) and Beatrice Pons (Lucille.)
