Ann Sothern makes the first of several Lucy Show appearances as the Countess Framboise. Although Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) is enchanted by the notion of royalty in humble Danfield, Lucy (Lucille Ball) easily recognizes the widowed countess as her old school pal Rosie Hannigan. Their friendship takes quite a battering when Lucy and the Countess attend a fancy wine-tasting party--then proceed to get thoroughly smashed! This episode's classic drunk scene is a replay of a sequence that Lucille Ball and Ann Sothern had previously enacted in a 1957 "Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" special, as well as an episode of The Ann Sothern Show.
