Lucy in London
7:00 PM PT
In celebration of centennial anniversary of the birth of legendary redhead and the Season Five DVD release of The Lucy Show, the Paley Center presents a premiere screening of new HD restoration of Ball’s innovative 1966 television special Lucy in London. Directed by Steve Binder (Elvis’ 1968 Comeback Special) and choreographed by David Winters (West Side Story), featuring music by Phil Spector and Irwin Kostal and starring special guests Anthony Newley and the Dave Clark Five, this dazzling travelogue was filmed entirely on location in and around the UK capital at the height of mod and swinging '60s. The film will be preceded by the premiere of a new behind-the-scenes documentary on the project which will be a special bonus feature on the above mentioned DVD release.
An on-stage conversation and audience Q&A with Steve Binder and others will close out this special program.
