Lucy in London


Recommended Posts

What did you guys think of LUCY IN LONDON??? I LOVED it.. watch it practically weeky... just curious what all of you thought!

Absolutely fantastic and it sure holds up well considering it was done so many decades ago. People tuned in expecting nothing but laughs and instead they got something totally different from her for one of the few times that Lucy tried something new. A theme, a different setting, great music and something modern and a new arena for her to make us appreciate her many talents even more. The special was envisioned as a series of Lucy in various cities of the world. Paris did not accomodate them, so they went to London, many other cities were touted as possible sites for these types of shows BUT, when Lucy read the reviews, she decided no more, the public only accepted her in her usual setting.

New re-edited version of the "Lucy in London" video coming soon to a screening room near you.

I apologize to the purists ahead of time.

I watched this again.. after a long break.. and I am just so damn in awe of her as a performer.  That woman could have gone on a vacation but wanted to work and wanted to create something special.  She wasn't asked.. she went out and did it.  She may have had a good reason to do this .. I don't know what it was.. it could have been simply that she had the resources so she took advantage of them.. regardless,  she flexed her acting muscles and I'm glad she did!
