Image for I Love Lucy 50th Anniversary Special

I have always been a fan of I Love Lucy, and the I Love Lucy 50th Anniversary Special has some great footage from the I Love Lucy shows. This special stars Lucie Arnaz, Desi Arnaz Jr. Antonio Banderas, Cher, Richard Crenna, Andy Garcia, Whoopi Goldberg, Larry King, Roseanne, Arturo Sandoval, Lily Tomlin, Dick Van Dyke, Barbara Walters, Henry Winkler, and more.

In this special we get to see footage of Lucy's childhood home with Desi Jr. and Lucie Arnaz giving us a tour. There are also original musical performances and a tribute to Desi's musical heritage. Some of the creators of the original show tell us amusing and interesting stories, and the special also contains personal commentary from many of today's stars about their views on the Ricardos and the Mertzes.

The 50th Anniversary Special is 85 minutes long and is in black and white as well as color. Any fan of Lucille Ball and the I Love Lucy TV series would probably enjoy this program.
