Reprising Classic Mirror Schtick...................
25 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

....................FROM THE PARAMOUNT Marx Brothers feature DUCK SOUP (1933) makes it all worthwhile in and of itself.

ALYHOUGH IT WAS absolutely popular in the early days of network television, I LOVE LUCY was never a biggie in the Ryan household located on Damen Avenue near 65th Street in the West Englewood community, Southside Chicago. Oh sure, we'd watch but there were other series we rated higher; bot with and without the obligatory canned laughter track. We has titles such as ANNIE OAKLEY, MY LITTLE MARGIE, CITIZEN SOLDIER, THE SILENT SERVICE, OZZIE & HARRIET, CRUSADER Rabbit and even TEST PATTERN TIME, just to name a few.

BUT THIS EPISODE of the LUCY Show, along with "Lucy and Superman" do stick out in our most fertile memory as exceptions to our rule. It must be the inclusion of two favourites, Harpo Marx and George Reeves (not a comedy team) in the episodes.So we were treated to both the mute Marx Brother as well as Superman himself.

THIS EPISODE WITH guest star Harpo, was truly a natural; as the continuity of the series included Lucy Ricardo's (nee McGillicudy) having an insatiable desire to break into Showbiz, just like hobby, Ricky. Akk that the writers needed was a situation to put the Ricardos in Hollywood (which they did one season) and the natural supply of Movie Stars would flow freely. In addition to George Reeves and Harpo Marx, we recall John Wayne doing a guest shot in an episode.

IMPORTANTLY THOUGH NOT apparent to our young minds in those days, the episode served as an homage to the Classic Movie comedy that was Hollywood in introducing us to routines such as the mirror sequence that was originally done just about two decades earlier (then).
