The Long, Long Trailer

Vincente Minnelli has the last word on 50s situation comedy in this film designed as a vehicle for Lucille Ball and Desi Arenaz at the height of their television popularity. Minnelli amplifies Lucy's character into the personification of Consumer Culture—a shrill, castrating harpy who drags the helpless Desi through humiliation after humiliation in her maniacal pursuit of middle-class bliss. The Long, Long Trailer is pure agony to watch, but it is one of the most brilliant and through dissections of this peculiarly American idiom on film.
