Those old movies are the best, and there are so many of them that are priceless.. We have always had a thing for RV's and Motorhomes.. so this is a special one for us..
Throw in a couple crazy Corgi's and Randy their sidekick, and it would be situation comedy for us to go on the trip Lucy and Desi took. One of us would not make it back alive!
Here is some trivia on the Long Long Trailer, from Wikipedia:
The novel was made into a movie in 1954 starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Marjorie Main, Keenan Wynn, Bert Freed, Moroni Olsen, Gladys Hurlbut, Madge Blake, and Walter Baldwin. It was directed by Vincente Minnelli working from a screenplay by Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich.
- According to Turner Classic Movies' host, Robert Osborne, the studio was not sure if this film would be a success because they thought that people would not pay money to see Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz in a movie when they could watch Lucy & Desi on television for free (I Love Lucy). So Desi made a $25,000 bet with the studio that the movie would make more money than the current highest grossing comedy at that time (Father of the Bride starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor and also directed by Vincente Minnelli). Desi won the bet.
