Reviews:  Besides making television history as the producers and stars of television's immensely popular "I Love Lucy" and "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour", Lucille Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz, starred in three quite agreeable feature films. The second of these, 1954's "The Long, Long Trailer", in gorgeous Technicolor and directed by Vincente Minnelli, is a somewhat allegorical tale of a newly married couple who invest in a 40-foot trailer as their first home--and immediately regret it. Well, at least Arnaz's character does; he's the one who has anxiety attacks over operating electric brakes while steering up and down one-lane, mountain roads. Sight gags are plentiful: a scene in which Ball tries to make beef stew, a Caesar salad, and cake in a wobbling, moving trailer is classic Lucy. But there are some genuine dramatic sequences in this handsome movie, too, and the stars rise to the occasion. "--Tom Keogh"
