  • Trying to get Ricky some publicity, Lucy becomes the "Maharincess of Franistan", royalty from a faraway land who is a big fan of Ricky's.

    When Lucy tries to get Ricky some publicity, there can only be humorous results! Lucy and Ethel dress up as the Maharincess of Franistan and her attendant, respectively. There are several funny moments in the episode, as well as classic quotes. Particularly funny is the final scene in the Waldorf hotel room, as Lucy and Ethel unwind from the performance at the club. Fred and Ricky turn the tables on them, pretending to be assassins who are after Franistan's royalty. Refuting the claim that she has the red and black hair of the Franistan royal family, Lucy states, "I'm not a Maharincess, I'm a henna rinses!" Another classic episode of "I Love Lucy".
