This is a great quality print for YouTube! It would be nice to have this in full on the Season Six TLS release even though MPI has included bits and pieces on their releases:

 

Pt. 1:

Pt. 2. Lucious Lucille appears approximately 2:30 into this:

Great show, thanks for posting.

Lucy's "It's Nice to Have a Man around the House" is one of her best vocal performances. I could hum that song all day long. Lucy looks hot at 57 and so do the dancers. Lucy's so playful. Her voice can still be unnatually high; only a few years later Lucy's vocal range would diminish. What a great Cleo dance. The opening with Lucy batering with Jack and Johnny is funny because of Lucy's great facial expressions. I can hardly wait for the rest of this to be uploaded. As for the rest of the show so far, I love the song Carnival. It's playful and energetic. I love it! The monologue is only ok but I love his spoof of Dean Martin and the part of Lucy. It is so much better than Bob Hope's monologues I have seen.

That's because Bob was full of himself and just recited jokes, Jack was a classic storyteller like Cosby is today, they are so much better, they can milk a story forever as they are so much a part of it. I remember stories i've heard both Jack and Bill tell in concerts but do not remember one single funny Hope joke.
