LUCY'S MOVIE INDEX

Movie #76:

The Fuller Brush Girl

Film Date: 1950
Film Type: comedy

Notes: This picture also inspired the My Favorite Husband Episode #98, "Fuller Brush Show". Highlights include Lucille Ball's outrageous striptease scene, to the tune of Rita Hayworth's "Put the Blame on Mame", and a choice cameo by Red Skelton as an all-too-cooperative customer.

Movie #77:

A Woman of Distinction

Film Date: 1950
Film Type: comedy

Notes: Appearing in unbilled cameos are Lucille Ball as herself, and Ball's future TV cohort Gale Gordon as a railroad ticket agent.

Movie #78:

The Magic Carpet

Film Date: 1951
Film Type: adventure

Notes: Hoping to force Lucille Ball into breaking her contract, Columbia Pictures chieftain Harry Cohn assigned her to this low-budget Arabian Nights escapade.

Movie #79:

The Long, Long Trailer

Film Date: 1954
Film Type: comedy

Notes: Despite the fact that audiences could watch Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in I Love Lucy for free each week on television, The Long, Long Trailer was a big hit at the box-office.

Movie #80:

Forever Darling

Film Date: 1956
Film Type: comedy

Notes: When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz beat the odds against TV stars succeeding on the big screen in The Long, Long Trailer, MGM contracted America's favorite couple for a second theatrical feature.

Movie #81:

The Facts of Life

Film Date: 1960
Film Type: comedy

Notes: Long unavailable for viewing due to legal tangles, The Facts of Life has gained legendary status as one of the few Bob Hope films of the 1960s to concentrate on character development rather than silly one-liners.

Movie #82:

Critic's Choice

Film Date: 1963
Film Type: comedy

Notes: Ira Levin wrote the stage comedy Critic's Choice as a good-natured retort to a comment made by critic Walter Kerr.
