Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz live slap-happily ever after as newlyweds honeymooning in The Long, Long Trailer, breezily directed by Vincente Minnelli. They quickly find that the interior of a moving trailer is ideal for tossing a Caesar salad—and everything else. They also discover that backing up their 40-foot, three-ton home is only a little more difficult than threading a needle wearing boxing gloves. And that trailer-park folks are neighborly sorts who turn the lovebirds' rig into the wrong, wrong trailer by crashing the wedding night. This smash hit was filmed at the height of the I Love Lucy television craze and is packed with the inventive sight gags and physical humor that made the series a TV landmark.
