AS SEEN IN:
'I Love Lucy'
"Lucy And John Wayne"
by bkoganbing at IMDb:
This episode is the sequel to the previous week's episode where Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance got the bright idea to take John Wayne's cement block footprints for a souvenir of Hollywood. It's certainly a more durable souvenir you would think that the grapefruit she took from Richard Widmark's orchard in a previous episode.
But of course the nasty old police get involved as the theft is considered news. And of course Desi Arnaz suspects his movie star crazy wife.
But they're dropped and shatter and the rest of the episode is spent trying to get John Wayne to donate his footprints without his suspicion. He and Arnaz at different points get a face full of cement as Lucy visits the set of the film he's currently shooting which is Blood Alley.
It all gets resolved in the end by the rather exasperated Duke and the harried Desi.
This episode shares the same title as used in 'The Lucy Show' eleven years later. It makes sense since it sums up the premise so simply - what more do you need than to know the Duke gets mixed up with that crazy redhead?
