I hope that the people at Paul Brownstein Productions start to release more rare Lucille Ball shows, such as her 1977 special "Lucy Calls the President" that reunited her with many of her costars like Gale Gordon and Vivian Vance. I think that we as fans need to let the companies that hold the rights to these shows know that there is a demand for them, and pass on the simple message that it's "Time To Open The Vaults!"
And the roster of commentators--Van Dyke, Carol Burnett (proving that Lucy COULD sing), Sammy Davis Jr , Dean Martin, Richard Burton, John Wayne, and Danny Kaye (showing an INCREDIBLE Lucy comedic clip from his variety show). The ultimate moment was Jimmy Stewart presenting Lucy with an achievement award.
Although there are no extras on this DVD, just scene selections and the program, they are not missed. The program has enough in it to keep you interested.
Considering the poor treatment Lucille Ball has been given on DVD (Madacy's substandard Lucy Shows), this DVD is a breath of fresh air.
