Product Description

I LOVE LUCY CO-STAR VIVIAN VANCE REUNITES WITH LUCY
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 and friends.
 
When Indiana housewife Lucy Whittaker (LUCILLE BALL) calls the White House to complain about a housing project, she soon discovers the President accepting an invitation to visit her home for dinner. Calamity and comedy follows as Lucy frantically prepares for the special event with the befuddled help of her family, friends and even Secret Service agents. Includes a surprise cameo appearance.

Essential for Lucy lovers, this found treasure, available for the first time on DVD, is more than a special, it's more like a This Is Your Life for the First Lady of Television. It reunites Lucy with two of her most dependable writers from the I Love… days, Bob Carroll Jr. and Madelyn Davis, and a veritable stock company of Lucy players, including Gale Gordon (The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, Life with Lucy), Mary Jane Croft (I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy), Mary Wickes (The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy), and Vivian Vance appearing with her I Love Lucy cohort for the last time. In this one-hour special taped before a studio audience in 1977, mayhem ensues when Lucy frantically prepares for a visit from President Jimmy Carter and his family. Gordon portrays her Republican father-in-law, with Ed McMahon as ever the consummate straight man as Lucy's husband. Some of the humor is atypically (for Lucy) topical. When she asks Gordon how her saxophone rendition of "Hail to the Chief" sounded, he replies, "Like you voted for Ford." But there's plenty of old-school slapstick and clowning that never gets old. What's really special are the generous bonus features, a trove of archival rarities including recently unearthed rehearsal footage, a Tonight Show appearance with a deferential Johnny Carson, and an excerpt from a 1965 radio broadcast of "Talking with Lucy" featuring Steve Allen, who appears as himself in Lucy Calls the President. This is one Call Lucy fans will not want to miss. --Donald Liebenson
