I Love Lucy - Colorized 'Superstar Special #1' on DVD this October

Also in black-and-white for both episodes on this single-disc title

Posted by David Lambert
    Get set to laugh with the I LOVE LUCY Superstar Special, as broadcast on CBS (5/17/2015). Also included are unedited versions of the LA at Last and Lucy and Superman episodes, both colorized and in black & white.
Back in May of last year, CBS aired colorized versions of the I Love Lucy episodes "L.A. at Last" (with William Holden), and "Lucy and Superman" (the latter with special guest star George Reeves from The Adventures of Superman). This "Superstar Special" broadcast was so popular that CBS went back and did it again this past May (2016), airing "Lucy Visits Grauman's" and "Lucy and John Wayne" for the second one. Besides these colorized I Love Lucy episodes, there have also been colorized episodes of Lucy each Christmas for 2013, 2014, and 2015: "The I Love Lucy Christmas Special" each year, plus each year a different second episode: "Lucy's Italian Movie," "Job Switching," and "Lucy Does a TV Commercial."

Now CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution have announced the October 4th DVD release of I Love Lucy - Superstar Special #1. This 45-minute disc comes with "L.A. at Last," and "Lucy and Superman," and both of these episodes will come in both the original black & white and the new colorized versions ("Colorized For Kids Of All Ages"). These will be in their original broadcast length (the studio informs retailers that this will have "footage not available on the CBS broadcast"), and an audio commentary by Doris Singleton (Caroline Appleby), Keith Thibodeaux (Little Ricky), and Steve Kay (Stevie Appleby). Here's the package art:
