LUCYS BACK JUST IN TIME FOR MOTHERS DAY IN I LOVE LUCY: THE MOVIE

Digitally Remastered Feature-Length Film Makes Stand-Alone DVD Debut April 27
From CBS Home Entertainment And Paramount Home Entertainment

Synopsis:  In 1953, three classic first season I LOVE LUCY episodes ("The Benefit," "Breaking the Lease" and "The Ballet") were edited together with newly-filmed connecting seasons to create this never-before-released feature-length film. In I LOVE LUCY: THE MOVIE, Lucy and Ricky perform together at a benefit for their landlords the Mertzes, which leads to an argument, a lease disagreement and a reconciliation. This movie was lost for nearly half a century after Desilu shelved it in 1953 to avoid competition with Lucy and Desi's first M-G-M movie, "The Long, Long Trailer."

Available for the first time as a stand-alone release, the DVD features bundles of bonus features including the fan-favorite I LOVE LUCY episode "Lucy Goes to Scotland," colorized in new brilliant hues; Lucy and Desi's first joint TV appearance on the Ed Wynn Show; I LOVE LUCY at the sixth annual Emmy® Awards; an on-set commercial from the series premiere and more. 

Starring: Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, William Frawley
