~The Long Long Trailer...Week-End

Ahh the week-end is here again my friends. What better way to avoid the heat than curling up & watching Lucy? This is a great one that doesn't get show a lot. Although it is going to me on Turner this month. It's very sweet to see Lucy & Desi still newly weds in this cute film. Enjoy!

The Long, Long Trailer (1953) Nicky and Tacy are going to be married. Nicky wants to save up money for a house, but Tacy dreams of starting off with their own home on wheels--a trailer. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage
