"What I'm Gonna Do With All This House?"
26 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest and certainly most famous episodes of the HERE'S LUCY series with a classic GONE WITH THE WIND skit.

When a call comes into the employment agency seeking temporary help for Flip Wilson, starstruck Lucy goes and fills the job herself. Unfortunately she discovers the job is merely handling his fan mail but she does sneak into his office and meet the star to get his autograph but gets fired for it. Meanwhile, Harry has joined a little theater - a VERY little theater in which he as the only male member is cast as Rhett Butler in a stage adaption of GONE WITH THE WIND. When three other cast members quit he is forced to accept Lucy and Kim for the roles of Scarlett and Melanie but the role of Prissy still needs to be cast...

The GWTW skit, while not as famous as Carol Burnett's later burlesque, is quite hilarious and Wilson's Prissy is priceless, here very re-visioned into a liberated sister. Lucie Arnaz gives the best performance she ever gave on the series as the due-any-minute Melanie and almost steals the skit away from Flip. Lucy's Scarlett is almost a straight man to Prissy and Melanie but she's lots of fun too.
