The Paley Center Loves Lucy
Also in Los Angeles, or, more correctly, Beverly Hills, the Paley Center will be celebrating Lucy with two events in early December. The first, scheduled for Monday, December 5, will spotlight Lucy's 1966 special, "Lucy in London," which will be released the following day by CBS Home Entertainment as part of their release of "The Lucy Show: The Official Fifth Season."
The Paley evening will include a special High Def screening of both the original special and a new documentary, "Lucy in London Revisited" (also included on the new DVDs). "Lucy in London" producer-director Steve Binder and co-writer Ron Friedman will be among the special guests.
For ticket information, visit the Paley Center web-site at:
"Lucy in London" Evening
A few nights later, on Friday, December 9, the Center is saluting "Tropicana Nights: the Music of 'I Love Lucy'." Special guests will include Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr.
For ticket information, visit the Paley Cener web-site at:
