What a difference a week makes ...

"Chris's New Year's Eve Party," unlike the episode from the week before, is a delight to watch. One great early scene has Lucy and Vivian doing the Watusi with their sons, and it has everyone else smiling and laughing while they waltz!

Then a crisis erupts at Chris's party.

Lucy, Viv and Harry play out a Charlie Chaplin skit that is a gem. Lucille Ball, Vivian Vance and Dick Martin (yeah, that guy from Laugh-In) do a great job here. The first two would have been teenagers when the silent movies were in their heyday, and Dick Martin would have been young enough to remember some of Charlie Chaplin's later silents.

The skit brings up something interesting: Silent movies were beginning to be appreciated again in this time period. During this time, Harold Lloyd was doing presentations of his films and trying to renew appreciation for old films. And an ocean away, Mr. Chaplin was a real-life father of teenagers, and became a father for the final time in 1962.

This episode is such a contrast to the one from the previous week, and was a great way to end 1962!
