Lucy hits the road for a second season of laughs on location in her comedy hit.
The legendary queen of television comedy, LUCILLE BALL, is joined by her real-life children in her third long-running sitcom success. Ball plays Lucille Carter, widowed mother of teenagers Kim and Craig, portrayed by Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr. Lucy works for her brother-in-law, played by Gale Gordon, who owns Carter's Unique Employment Agency, leading Lucy into endless predicaments and hilarious hijinks.
The complete second season of HERE'S LUCY (1968-74, CBS-TV) features all 24 color episodes uncut and digitally remastered for superior quality, plus a wealth of new and never-before-seen special features. Guest stars include Vivian Vance, Johnny Carson, Carol Burnett, Milton Berle, Ann-Margret, Liberace, Wayne Newton, Lawrence Welk, Wally Cox and Patty Andrews of The Andrews Sisters.
Earlier this month, on August 7-9, the folks at the Lucy-Desi Museum held a weekend-long celebration
of Lucille Ball's birthday. Fans who attended were treated by MPI Home video to a sneak preview of the upcoming August 25th
release of Here's Lucy - Season 1
on DVD. The brochure for that event also showed off an early look at the cover art for the 2nd Season release that MPI has been working on (our thanks to the various readers who e-mailed us regarding that).
