Did you recognize Lucille Ball in those go-go boots above? According to television historian Richard Metzger of Dangerous, Lucille Ball did an hour long variety special, “Lucy in London” in 1966 in conjunction with her series “The Lucy Show.” “Lucy Carmichael” won a free trip to London in a dog food jingle contest and she took “Mr Mooney” (Gale Gordon) as her plus one. Monsanto sponsored the show. In this clip Anthony Newley took her shopping on Carnaby Street after she fell in the Thames. Watch for a cameo by Twiggy. Oh, and that’s The Dave Clark Five singing. Have fun!



  1. I used to love Lucy until I found out what a racist jerk she was. I’m surprised she married a Cuban, but I guess he was a white Cuban.

  2. @Juxtapose – when whites dont kiss black asses, they are racist, rite? Go back to Africa if u dont like it. Simple

  3. Xyz, you’re clearly ignorant. When whites call blacks the N word and mean it, that’s probably a very good indicator that they are racist.

  4. What a hoot! Lucy looked pretty hip I’ve gotta say. A real treat…thanks Janet.

  5. Lucy is absolutely adorable!

    I never thought of her as pretty because of her clown-like lipstick, but if she had avoided that mistake she could have been considered one of Hollywood’s attractive women.

  6. Oh, how she is missed! I love watching her. She was one of the greatest stars of all time and truly DESERVES that title.

    Sadly, in real life, she had kind of an unhappy go of it. Regardless, she gave this beachchick many enjoyable hours of entertainment!!

  7. oh wow that was fun! thanks Janet…I did see Twiggy. I remember when the Dave Clark Five were bigger than the Beatles in the beginning. Wonder what happened to them? they just sort of disappeared.

  8. Always loved watching Lucy on TV…heard she was a mean drunk in real life…

  9. I was suggested this site by my cousin. I am not sure no matter whether this publish is prepared by him as no a single else know this sort of detailed about my difficulty. You’re incredible! Thanks!
