Tom -

Tell me.

You're in the business aren't you ?

You get 'review' copies of all these DVD's, don't you ?

Surely you don't buy them at that rate ?

I actually do buy about 95% of my DVD's. I get screener copies, that are sent out long before the street date, but they almost always have a super every 10 minutes or so that says "screener", "preview" or something equally annoying. Granted, this does cut down considerably on bootlegging, which I am all for. So, most of my DVD's come from Best Buy, Circuit City, and Wal-Mart.

The episode with Joan Crawford aired on February 26, 1968. It has been released on DVD, but not from a major studio and with absolutely awful quality. In fact, many of the box sets from The Lucy Show feature both crappy picture and sound. Be careful what you buy.

Do you happen to know which version of "The Lucy Show" DVD set the Crawford show was on? There are like a million of these "Lucy Show" sets and I can't ever find it dang it! I love both Lucy and Joan, the John Wayne episode is on every set I have seen I think...

Jeff,
The Crawford episode wasn't on a set, but a single disc of about 6 episodes released in the late 90's and was called something like Lucy Goes Hollywood. It had the Crawford, Wayne, Benny, Burns, Berle, and Burnett episodes on it. The DVD is long out of print, but from what I hear the video quality was worse than a "third generation VHS dub" and the sound was only slightly better. You may be able to find one on eBay.
