I Love Lucy Complete 4th Season DVD Review
Here We Come!" This is the year that Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel head west so
Ricky can be in the movie "Don Juan." Many consider this the best year for I
Love Lucy and certainly some of the most memorable episodes ever involve Lucy
and her quest to meet movie stars.
What's amazing is how well these
shows hold up even after forty years. The gags still work, even though I've
seen them all before. It is especially nice to see them digitally remastered
and restored. They look much better than they did "back in the day" because
they can be viewed off a DVD on a much superior TV! And the difference between
these and the syndication versions is like night and day. How nice to have all
those little bits clipped for cable restored.
Season 4 is full of
Fifties movie star power. Guests included William Holden, Eve Arden, Harpo
Marx, Richard Widmark, Cornel Wilde, Rock Hudson, Van Johnson, Hedda Hopper,
Ernie Ford, and Sheila MacRae.
A great deal of care and respect has gone
into this compilation. Attention to the original makes this set a fan's dream.
It includes the original openings and closing. Did you know that the heart on
satin Lucy logo we are all so familiar with never appeared in the original? It
was created for the reruns.
I find myself devouring the Special Features
for all the inside scoop on the episodes. They include flubs, production notes
and a behind-the-scenes audio featurette. You also get 5 complete episodes of
Lucy's radio show: My Favorite Husband from which the I Love Lucy show
There are Spanish sub-titles and Spanish audio is available on
If you are going to buy one set of Lucy on DVD, the 4th
Season is the one to get.
