~ All Weekend Long - August 6th & 7th 2011 - "I Love Lucy" 100th Birthday Tribute!
(Over 100 Episodes of "I Love Lucy")
My Favorite "I Love Lucy" Episode:
Oh my, or as Lucy would say, "Eeeewwwww", can I possibly choose one? I think my absolute favorite is The Dancing Star with Van Johnson - for once Lucy is the star and she is successful! I love it! Plus, I love their trip to California when they end up at the same rest stop over and over again - and when Lucy does the Commercial, when she tells Ricky she is expecting, when they redecorate the Mertz Apartment, the chickens, the lawn mower, Ethel's birthday gift, the chocolate candy, the home permanent, meeting Bill Holden, Madame X, Lucy misses the Boat, and so many more........oh, I guess I do love them all!

My Favorite Lucy Film:
Well, I just can't pick one... I adore - Miss Grant Takes Richmond (with the Handsome, William Holden), The Fuller Brush Girl (such a funny, Suspenseful Mystery), The Long, Long Trailer (again, very funny!), and Easy to Wed (which of course, isn't Easy, at all - and I Love Van Johnson with Lucy!).
Enjoy the wonderful Lucy Laughter... and the 100th Birthday Celebration of a Fantastic Actress and Comedian as we all honor, Lucille Ball!
