This is an early gem of Lucille Ball at her comic best. The perfectly timed dead-pan looks and incredulous expressions set her in our minds, as surely as a home perm, to establish her as a comic genius that others in her wake can only aspire to. Her equally great skill was to carve a path, scratching and fighting in a man's world in the studio jungle, to estblish Desilu productions. Hard to be funny, tough, respected, feared and loved but Lucille Ball did all that and brought up two kids in amongst all the maelstrom. Few stars can put their names to that number of achievements.
