The Long, Long Trailer Release, Critiques

The Long, Long Trailer opened in New York City on December 31, 1953.

“A light comedy with a quantity of slapstick gags, this film works thanks to the stars’ chemistry and Ball’s timing,” reports Tv Guide.

Film Analysis: I Really like Lucy on Wheels

By 1953, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz had been the hottest thing on tv thanks to I Really like Lucy, TV’s highest-rate show at the time. In order to further capitalize on that recognition, genuine-life husband and wife Desi and Lucy boarded The Long, Lengthy Trailer, a movie sitcom based on wheels.

Desi Arnaz, a gambler with each his money and his tips, thought The Lengthy, Lengthy Trailer would go over properly. MGM executives weren’t so positive, citing the fact that audiences could watch Lucy and Desi for free of charge on television. Desi then created a wager with the studio, betting ,000 that The Lengthy, Lengthy Trailer would gross much more at the box office than Father of the Bride (1950), the then existing champion in the comedy film genre. Desi won the bet.

I Enjoy Lucy fans will treasure this movie, as “Ricky” becomes “Nicky” and “Lucy” becomes “Tacy.” Each tv stars appear very good up on the huge screen, with Marjorie Main and Keenan Wynn lending superb comic support. Add to that some stunning scenery of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and The Long, Lengthy Trailer becomes a charming travelogue/romantic comedy. But where the heck are Fred and Ethyl Mertz?
