The premise and the cast changed frequently, with only Gale Gordon lasting most of the run of the show (he joined the cast during the second season). Originally, Vivian Vance was the costar. From time to time, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr. appeared. The earliest scripts were entitled The Lucille Ball Show, but all episodes aired with the title The Lucy Show. In this episode Lucy runs into John Wayne, her star struck demeanor getting her into trouble.
