Ricky (Desi Arnaz) plunges into a deep depression when he learns that MGM plans to shelve his upcoming debut film, "Don Juan." Hoping to save Ricky's movie career, Lucy (Lucille Ball), Fred (William Frawley), and Ethel (Vivian Vance) concoct all manner of wacky schemes. When these fail, Lucy hires a actor to pose as a big-time movie producer who will make Ricky a fabulous film offer in the presence of MGM's CEO, Dore Schary. Unfortunately, the actor she hires happens to be Dore Schary himself! (Ironically, the real Dore Schary was to have appeared in this episode, but at the last moment developed a case of stage fright; he was replaced by Philip Ober, who at that time was the husband of I Love Lucy co-star Vivian Vance.)
