Lucie and Desi's (Ricky) Classic Movie "The Long Long Trailer" is going to be on the Classic Movie Channel (TMC) Sunday 6/22/2008 @ 5:15 pm Central.
Check your local listings.

I have seen clips of the movie but never the Whole thing. I'm so excited I had to share it with you!

We watched it at the FCU restoration rally. It was the first time my wife had seen it, and I hadn't seen it in decades. We just recently watched RV with Robin Williams and The Long Long Trailer is sooo much better. I love the Rocks

Tracy Lucy Nicky Ricky Memorial

Here's my front yard.

One rock story stands out. The regular tunnel near Santa Rita NM was closed due to a rockslide so they detoured us through the Phelps Dodge open pit copper mine. Following pilot car through the mine in the middle of 50 foot high dump trucks with 12' tires my wife spotted this big piece of azurite. Never weighed it but it was heavy, and big, and now has a place of honor with it's friends in my front yard.

I won't swear it was THE trailer, but we used to own an indentically-appearing trailer. It had an addition built on the side of it, plus it had several million unwanted guests in the form of termites. One of the cabinet doors had been autographed by Lucy and Desi. While that doesn't mean it was THE trailer, at least we can claim "George Washington slept here"...
I had the thought of restoring the trailer, but it had been altered too much, and most of the structural wood had been damaged by termites. It DID have the original toilet, sinks, and tub.

I hope you don't mean that your wife prepares dinner in the trailer while you're driving to the next destination!

It's interesting to note that Walter Baldwin (Uncle Edgar) was the first "Floyd the Barber" on "Andy Griffith Show" and Howard McNear (Joe Hittaway) was the second and final "Floyd". Also, Connie Van, "Poor Cousin Grace" played a waitress on "Andy" Season 1 before she died of a cerebral hemorrhage in July 1961.

Madge Blake (Aunt Anastacia) played on "Leave It To Beaver" as Larry Mondello's mom and also Aunt Harriet on "Batman".

Great character actors!

I pulled that pass last year with our 2006 Expedition. I didn't know at the time it was used in the movie. Great movie and a bear of a grade.

I'm surprised they were able to get up it when it was dirt. I would think they would loose traction.
