'Twixt and 'tween his sitcom-star assignments on F Troop and Mayberry RFD, dancer-comedian Ken Barry does a guest-star turn in this Lucy Show episode. When Ken Jones (Berry) is unable to secure a loan from Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) to open his own dance school, Lucy (Lucille Ball) takes a hand in matters. Figuring that all Ken needs is some publicity, she arranges for a group of truck drivers to sign up as Ken's first dance students, then wangles a TV appearance on the local human-interest show emceed by real-life LA video personality Ralph Story. Somewhere along the way, Ken offers a song-and-dance interpretation of the classic Fred Astaire number "One for My Baby", and duets with Lucy for a rousing rendition of "Lucy's Back In Town".
