Overview

Synopsis

Annabel Takes a Tour
Hoping to revive the flagging career (and spirits) of actress Annabel Allison (Lucille Ball), once his studio's biggest star, publicist Lanny Morgan (Jack Oakie) sends her flowers signed by Viscount Ronald River-Clyde, a well-known romance novelist. Annabel, smitten by this romantic gesture, meets the real Viscount (Ralph Forbes), unaware that he's a happily married man. This is a sequel to The Affairs of Annabel. ~ Bill Warren, Rovi

The Affairs of Annabel
Lucille Ball landed her first starring comedy role in the mile-a-minute farce The Affairs of Annabel. Lucy of course plays the title character, a screwball movie actress who indulges in one wacky publicity stunt after another at the behest of her press agent Morgan (Jack Oakie). To promote an upcoming prison picture, Annabel gets herself arrested-and has quite a time extricating herself from behind bars. The limit comes when she gathers research for her next film by hiring on as a housemaid, culminating in a fake kidnapping that turns out to be the real thing. Matching Ball and Oakie laugh for laugh is Fritz Feld as a bombastic foreign director. Cowritten by future Desilu Studios executive Bert Grant, The Affairs of Annabel was popular enough to inspire an equally hilarious sequel, Annabel Takes a Tour. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
