As previously reported, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour DVD will be released on March 13th and Tom Watson has more information on the first episode, Lucy Takes a Cruise to Havana.
Although the DVD cover is, in my opinion, mislabeled as "I Love Lucy - Seasons 7, 8, & 9" it will have all 13 episodes of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour including the full 75 minutes of the first episode which has never been rebroadcast.
