Outlandish escapades are made entertaining by Lucy in an early comedy role. Good supporting cast.

This was good enough to Spawn a Sequel,' Annabel Takes a Tour', missing here on Flixter.Lucy is a Brunette for a change,an Actress named Annabel, but it seems she,much like in the I Love Lucy Show, is always mixed up in Hair Brain Scheme's.This time these schemes are the Brain child of her Agent,Morgan, Jack Okie.She even does a month in Prison for Film Research & as a publicity stunt, but the press never picks up on it because her Agent is inept, & always getting her into Hot Water,which makes this funny.Annabel will do anything for publicity, including becoming a maid , & getting involved in a fake kidnapping, that turns out not to be fake after all. A fun Screwball Comedy to dd to your Lucy List.
