Editorial Reviews

A Double Feature Starring Lucille Ball with Dean Martin and Jackie Gleason

Following the long-running success of her Here s Lucy series, the inimitable Lucille Ball returned to television with a series of special programs, pairing her with other legendary performers.

LUCY GETS LUCKY finds the wacky redhead pulling out all the stops in Las Vegas to see her favorite entertainer, Dean Martin. Lucy gets a job working at the MGM Grand casino and high stakes hi-jinks follow.

THREE FOR TWO presents Lucy with the Great One, Jackie Gleason - combining their comedic talents for the first time - in a trio of comedy-dramas centered on the various aspects of marriage.

Bonus features include: LET S TALK TO LUCY, long-lost radio interviews with Dean Martin, bloopers, featurette with guest actor Gino Conforti, and rare Lucy footage.

Customer Reviews

There was a real chemistry together with both of the specials!
Karl Anderson
I can't wait for the future releases, and I hope MPI has the rights to do all of them!
Tante Maren
Even if you love both these specials, this dvd is a must buy just for the extras.

This is the first Double DVD of The Lucille Ball Specials. I contacted MPI Home Video to find out if they are putting more of The Lucille Ball Specials on dvd, besides this one, and they said YES! Lucille Ball had 11 television specials between 1964 and 1980. I will briefly list them, for those who want to know, but MPI did not say which of the specials they are putting out on future dvd's, but I am hoping all of them! The specials are: 1.Mr.& Mrs.(w/Bob Hope)1964, 2.Lucy in London (w/Anthony Newley)1966, 3.Carol+2 (w/Carol Burnett) 1967, 4.Happy Anniversary and Goodbye (w/Art Carney) 1974, 5. Dean Martin's Celebrity Roast-Lucille Ball (w/dozens of stars) 1975, 6. Lucy Gets Lucky (w/Dean Martin) 1975, 7. Three for Two (w/Jackie Gleason) 1975, 8. What now Catherine Curtis? (w/Art Carney) 1976, 9. Lucy Calls the President (w/Vivian Vance and Gale Gordon) 1977, 10. Lucy Comes to Nashville (w/Barbara Mandrell) 1978 and 11. Lucy moves to NBC (w/ Bob Hope, Johnny Carson and many others) 1980.

This dvd features two of Lucy's television specials. The first being LUCY GETS LUCKY, which premiered on March 1, 1975. This special was filmed on location at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Lucy plays Lucy Collins, a huge fan of Dean Martin, who is determined to see Dean in person, even though his concert is completely sold out. When Lucy finds out Dean is doing a private performance at the MGM just for the employees, she naturally gets herself hired there and the trouble begins. The fun starts, when Dean has to save the hotel and Las Vegas from disaster! This special is one hour long and also guest stars her husband Gary Morton, Jackie Coogan along with many others.

The second television special of Lucy's on this dvd set is THREE FOR TWO, which premiered on December 3, 1975.

I think the specials are amazing. I love them. I can't wait for the rest to come out! Picture is so clear, everything is wonderful. Stories are great, and of course Lucy is amazing! Not gonna lie, I usually buy DVD's for bonus features - & this one has tons! Lucy on the radio, Lucy on TV shows, Lucy's co-stars talking about Lucy - Working with Lucy, it's wonderful. FOR SURE worth it!

Let me first say that I LOVE LUCY and have since I was old enough to watch tv. I grew up watching her shows, I own I LOVE LUCY the entire series as well as HERES LUCY boxed set and the first season of THE LUCY SHOW. I am glad I bought these specials but I am sorry to say they are not Lucy at her best by any means. The first special with Dean Martin was pretty good. I did enjoy it.That being said, THREE FOR TWO with Jackie Gleason was certainly another story. I am also a fan of Gleasons, I have all the sets of the HONEY MOONERS and watch them all the time, check out the color episodes now availible from MPI, they are very funny. this special is almost unwatchable,something I thought I would never say about these two major talents. I can not imagine what they where thinking didn't anyone read the script??? I understand they were going for something different. Lucille was'nt playing LUCY and I respect that, but if it was not for my admiration of the talent involved I never would have finished this program, yes it was that bad.the set does have some great extras though,and it is worth the price for the Dean Martin special alone

This is a very special summer for Lucy fans. We are getting THE LUCY SOW and HERE'S LUCY both with their 1st season on dvd. But make sure to not bypass this excellent dvd that contains two specials Lucy did after HERE'S LUCY was off the air. Lucy did many specials of varying quality and even if these two aren't your favorite they are presented here in remastered brilliance and it is awesome to see the master at work in different material.

LUCY GETS LUCKY costars Dean Martin and runs like a long Lucy episode. It has some hilarious moments. The one very noticable thing is no laugh track. THREE FOR TWO teams Lucy with the great Jackie Gleason and interestingly at the time she chose to make this special a trio of drama vignettes and not comedy. They are not the best vehicles for the drama side of Lucy whe know is there but the special is very enjoyable and a mustt have for any true Lucy fans collection.

Even if you love both these specials, this dvd is a must buy just for the extras. It is overflowing with never before released material. Lucy at one time had a radio talk show and there are 2 episodes with guest Dean Martin. There is a lengthy interview with Gino Conforti, a frequent Lucy guest star with a long history with the comedy queen. He offers much insight into her as a person and as a professional. There is also rare footage and bloopers. Lucy fans will be thrilled with all this material.

I am thrilled with this dvd and thrilled to have these specials in my collection. I am greatly anticipating release of the others. Highly recommend this dvd.

MPI has done a great job with this set. Even if these may not be two of your favorite Lucy shows, the bonus features are worth the price alone - two interviews with Dean, illustrated with many photos and some animation, and some outtakes with Dean from the special. Check it out.
