In the follow-up to 'I Love Lucy,' Lucille Ball plays widow Lucy Carmichael, a mother of two children who shares a home with divorced friend Vivian Bagley (Vivian Vance of 'I Love Lucy' fame). Carmichael is always scheming—dragging Vivian along with her—and grappling with comic complications related to life on her own and serving as secretary to the grumpy and demanding Mr. Mooney.
Lucy is set up on a date with Dean Martin's stunt double. When the double can't make it, Dean himself substitutes on the date. During the date Lucy keeps telling him how bad it is that Dean Martin is stealing all of his glory.
Lucy takes over a neighbor's "maps to the stars' homes" business. This leads to her acting as an usher at a big Hollywood movie premiere, in a uniform that's way too small. Look for cameos from Kirk Douglas, Jimmy Durante, Edward G. Robinson, Vince Edwards and "Mayor of Hollywood" Johnny Grant.
As a contestant on Linkletter's television show, Lucy is offered $200 if she can keep from talking for 24 hours. Art sends her home with an audience member, Helen, to keep her honest. Helen's a plant from the show, as is the "convict" who bursts into Lucy's house searching for the "one-armed man."
Lucy is sent by the bank to contact Mr. Mooney, who's vacationing at a dude ranch. She becomes lost and stumbles into an indian reservation. They believe she's the rain goddess, sent to relieve the drought. She'd better produce some precipitation, and fast!
