Synopsis

Four more episodes of the popular 1960s American comedy series starring Lucille Ball as Lucy Carmichael, recent divorcee and personal secretary to Theodore Mooney (Gale Gordon), vice president of the Westland Bank. In 'Lucy Goes to London', Lucy writes a jingle for a dog food company and wins a trip to London. But when she misses her flight, she's forced to take a commuting flight to New York - in a seat next to Mr Mooney, who is on his way to the Big Apple for a business meeting. In 'Lucy Gets Trapped', Lucy fakes sickness to go shopping at a one-day-only sale with Mary Jane (Mary Jane Croft). But when Lucy becomes the customer of the year and has her photo printed in the paper, Lucy must hide the paper from Mr Mooney before he sees it. In 'Lucy and Jack Benny's Account', Lucy is in need of new accounts for the bank, and visits Jack Benny (appearing as himself) to try and get him to keep his money at her bank. He agrees to do it if she can prove that her bank can build a vault safer than his. Lucy then has the bank build a burglar proof vault, and gives Mr Benny a personal tour... In 'Little Old Lucy', Lucy and Mr Mooney are sent to pick up Mr Heatherington (Dennis Day), the wealthy bank president, from the airport, and the gentleman finds that Lucy strikes his fancy. So when Mr Mooney neglects to find a lady for Mr Heatherington to escort to that evening's banquet, Lucy is given the job. But to her dismay, she's forced to dress up as a little old lady. As it turns out, little old Lucy strikes perverse Mr Heatherington's fancy even more than the younger Lucy did...
