According to the CBS Press Release: These Newly Colorized Episodes will be seamlessly combined...
“L.A. at Last!” finds the Ricardos and Mertzes arriving in Hollywood, where Ricky is appearing in a new motion picture. Star-struck Lucy is anxious to meet some movie stars up-close, and decides to have lunch with the Mertzes at the famed Brown Derby Restaurant, where she meets film star William Holden and causes a major mess. Ricky innocently complicates matters when he meets Holden at the studio later, and invites him home for coffee.
“L.A. at Last!” originally aired Feb. 7, 1955, and became an instant classic. The script was nominated for an Emmy® Award.
In “Lucy and Superman,” Lucy and longtime friend and rival Caroline Appleby want to schedule their child’s birthday party on the same afternoon. Lucy finally “wins” the battle by promising that TV superhero Superman will appear at Little Ricky’s party. However, things take a hilarious turn when the “Man of Steel” has a scheduling problem and Lucy decides to replace him.
“Lucy and Superman” originally aired Jan. 14, 1957, and was an immediate hit with fans of both “I Love Lucy” and “Superman.”
I hope all of you enjoy these 2 wonderful iconic "I Love Lucy" episodes in color! I love ALL the old "I Love Lucy" re-runs, but two episodes are my absolute favorites, and one of them is "L.A. at Last", which co-stars William Holden, and I can't wait to see it in color!
