Watch two colorized episodes of the classic I Love Lucy TV series in a one-hour special on CBS Friday, May 20, at 8pm ET/PT. The October 1955 episodes “Lucy Visits Grauman’s” and “Lucy and John Wayne” are a two-part story about Lucy (Lucille Ball) taking screen legend John Wayne’s cement footprints as a souvenir from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The two episodes are presented as one continuous story for this special. Desi Arnaz also stars as Ricky Ricardo, and Vivian Vance and William Frawley play the Ricardos’ best friends, Fred and Ethel Mertz. The episodes also feature a guest appearance by Wayne.
In the first part, “Lucy Visits Grauman’s,” Lucy and the Mertzes visit Hollywood’s famed Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, where Lucy discovers that the cement slab containing Wayne’s footprints has come loose. Lucy thinks it would be a fabulous souvenir to take home, and she hatches a plan to take it. Then in the second part, “Lucy and John Wayne,” Lucy must find a way to replace the footprints, which, of course, becomes a comedy of errors.
