A posthumous tribute to comedy legend Lucille Ball by her frequent co-star Bob Hope features clips from many of their sketches and tributes from George Burns, Danny Thomas, Kirk Cameron, and Betty White.
Did You Know?
In a sketch from "The Bob Hope Show" (September 24, 1962) Lucy plays a district attorney trying to arrest Bugsy Hope. Edited out of the sketch is a bit that was frighteningly prescient. A spray of gunfire comes through the window and Lucy remarks "Just what I wanted, a Jackie Kennedy hairdo." Another change involves music royalties. In the original, Lucy makes her entrance into Bugsy's flat to the tune of David Rose's "The Stripper" (released in 1962) but in 1989 it is replace by a similar sounding piece of music. See more
