A crucial scene from episode 2 of season 1, _"The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1957) "The Celebrity Next Door" (#1.2)_, has been omitted on TV broadcasts as well as from the video version, even from the so-called complete prints titled "We Love Lucy". Fred gets splattered with strawberry pie, he retreats to the kitchen with Ethel, and Lucy says how humiliated she is. Tallulah Bankhead quickly & personally said "Oh, forget it darling. This is my lucky night, I'm allergic to strawberries. They give me hives!" Lucy and Tallulah then banter back and forth for a moment. The tail end of this scene is missing in recent prints, where Ricky asks if Tallulah would like some coffee. This brief missing scene sets up what happens among the final scenes, where Tallulah Bankhead broke out in hives. See more »
I have to add that Lucille Ball in these one-hour shows is very attractive. The comedy is fresh and almost as enjoyable as the chocolate-eating scene from I Love Lucy. Predictable but very enjoyable is an appropriate way to describe this comedy. In addition to a cast of celebrities, there are some great scenes with chickens, horses, donkeys, and little Fred (a dog).
Each episode has a unique twist to it: a snowball fight with Danny Thomas, a horse race with Betty Grable, a chance to ice skate with Fernando Lamas.
It is a great way to spend a Saturday night.
