Synopsis
Again hoping to hornswoggle Ricky (Desi Arnaz) into hiring her for his nightclub act, Lucy (Lucille Ball) decides to feign a complete nervous breakdown. Using a psychology book as her guide, Lucy intends to break up her "malady" into three stages. First, she takes on the personality of her favorite celebrity, Tallulah Bankhead; next, she intends to fake amnesia; and finally, she will revert to childhood. But Ricky figures out what is going on, and hires his pal Hal March (playing himself) to pose as a "Dr. Stevenson" to throw a good, healthy scare into Lucy. ~ Rovi
