Nicky and Tacy are going to be married. Nicky wants to save up money for a house, but Tacy dreams of starting off with their own home on wheels--a trailer. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage.Written by

The trailer cost $5,345 with a 1/3 down payment of $1,763. The tax was $160, and the registration and insurance were $73 for a total down payment of $1,932.22 (this was also a math goof as the numbers do not add up). The tax rate equates about 3 percent. By 2017, the money cited in 1954 had the same purchasing power as follows: The trailer cost $48,252 with a 1/3 down payment of $15,915. A similar size travel trailer in 2017 costs under $30,000. The tax was $1,444, and the registration and insurance were $659 for a total down payment of $17,443.06. Using California's 2017 sales tax rate of 7.25%, the tax amount would have been $3,498.

One of Tacy's souvenir rocks was from Bridge of the Gods, she said. This is along the Oregon/Washington border along the Columbia between Portland and Tri-Cities. A very roundabout route between Southern California and Colorado. See more »

Lucy and Desi are marvelous in this fabulous comedy
So often critics and historians say that Lucy never made it in films or that she was just the "Queen of the B's before TV made her a superstar." But many of her best 40's films are now available on DVD and this absolute gem from the 50's should prove Lucy's film worthiness to everyone. A perfect comedy with some dramatic undertones that was filmed in 1953 just as Lucy and Desi were at their zenith as stars. Minnelli' s superb direction, a delightful script, and gorgeous technicolor magnify Lucy and Desi's wonderful performances. Like all comedy classics this film is grounded in reality and that is why all the pratfalls and situations work so beautifully. The story about newlyweds who spend their honeymoon in a trailer does not date one bit. Lucy looks amazingly young and beautiful even though she was already 42. Desi also gives a great performance. His shower scene is unforgettable and Lucy flying out of the trailer is a must see for any comedy lover. It's shame Lucy did not get more scripts like this one. Often her films were highly successful at the box-office but not that good("DuBarry Was a Lady"1943, "Easy to Wed"1946,"Sorrowful Jones"1949) but this is one of the great winners in her long career.
