My title, for this show's 2-part program is "The Naive Native", Part 2 of 2.
8 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

As I promised, (in Tennessee Ernie Visits & Part 1 of 2) I will leave a comment here, on its conclusion & second half. My favorite parts of "Tennessee Hangs On", are when Ricky Ricardo bought a bus ticket to Bent Fork, Tennessee, and Lucy got Ernie to find it, Ernie then apparently gave it to a total stranger, in which caused "Ricky Ricardo" to weep, about his attempted trick, and it BACKFIRED! more than any other is the concluding song, when Tennessee Ernie Ford, Desi Arnaz, William Frawley, Vivian Vance & Lucille Ball sang together as a 5-part quintet and all five were very musical. This is the only time, that I know of that "Lucy Ricardo" was NOT OFF KEY! In Sincerest Honesty. 63x927is58401.
