Lucy, with a new look!
21 August 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This episode is another favorite that has left me laughing to the point of tears and wanting to watch over and over again. It is because of episodes like this why it will be a long time before I ever watch the entire DVD set. Another episode, seen for the first time in many years, rekindles old memories, cracks me up and leaves me wanting to watch it again and again.

After the Ricardos and the Mertzes watched an Italian movie, Lucy decided that she wants to get her hair styled and cut like an Italian actress (cut short). Ricky does not! So Lucy borrows a black wig from her beautician and with an Italian styled dress, she decides to masquerade as a strange woman and flirt with Ricky.

The flirting scene, alone, is a riot! I won't spoil things by revealing too much. Go watch it for yourself!
