Guest stars include Don Knotts, Donny Osmond, Eva Gabor, Joe Namath, Petula Clark, Lloyd Bridges, Ruth Buzzi, Robert Cummings, Totie Fields, Ricardo Montalban, Elsa Lanchester, Jim Bailey, John Davidson, Craig Stevens and Desi Arnaz, Jr.
Several weeks back we reported that a release date was found for MPI's Here's Lucy - Season 5 on DVD, but that our contact at the studio informed us that the February 28th info shown at Amazon's pre-order listing wasn't necessarily finalized. Today, though, the word came from MPI Home Video that this will indeed be the street date. The 4-disc set "includes a wealth of special features," and is priced at $29.98 SRP. Here's the finalized high-res front box cover:
NOTE (12/14): Due to multiple e-mails from distressed readers who are passionate fans of this show, incorrect information concerning the broadcast years of this season was removed from the quoted studio description at the top of this post. We regret passing along info that's in dispute.
