Storyline

Lucy and Vivian's (who's visiting Lucy) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. They walk to a house down the road to see if they can call an auto club and the house is owned by none other than Joan Crawford, the movie star. All her furniture has been sent out for cleaning, so Lucy and Viv think she's broke and try to raise money for the star. Written by steve-o

Actually pretty good
22 December 2015 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

I have to disagree with the previous poster...this is a typical LUCY SHOW episode, with the usual jokes and such, and several times I did laugh at Lucy's, Viv's or Joan's jokes. Joan is not "in a fog" and she does not "slur" her speech. She appears quite cognizant throughout the show, and Lucy (the perfect hostess as the star) defers to Joan when appropriate. I am not a Crawford fan (I actually think Bette Davis is the better talent), but I find it too sad that Joan Crawford's personal problems in her later years have influenced IMDb posters to make such negative comments about her. She may not have been perfect, and maybe she was a real bitch, but she WAS a star for five decades and she deserves at least a little respect for that!
