Set against the anti-war protests, rock & roll revolution, and mind-expanding psychedelia of the 1960s, Julie Taymor's hallucinogenic musical follows the arduous journey of star-crossed lovers Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood) as they and a small group of musicians are swept up in the raging waters of the volatile counterculture movement. Guided through their journey by a pair known only as Dr. Robert (Bono) and Mr. Kite (Eddie Izzard), Jude and Lucy are eventually forced to find their way back to one another after being split apart by powerful forces beyond their control. The music in the film consists exclusively of songs made popular by the Beatles during the time period depicted in the movie. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

When one of Steelman's divers perishes beneath the waves, the locals fix the blame on the dead man's girlfriend Coralee (Antoinette Bower), who is widely regarded as a jinx. But Kimble knows that the diver's death was due to faulty equipment--and Steelman knows this as well, but doesn't intend to let anyone else find out. This is the last episode of The Fugitive's third season, and the final one filmed in black and white. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: A Taste of Tomorrow Under the alias "Alan Mitchell", Richard Kimble (David Janssen) links up with another fugitive from justice, Joe Tucker (Fritz Weaver). Falsely accused of embezzlement, Tucker has returned to his home to town for the purpose of killing the man whose testimony sent him to prison. Normally, Kimble would do everything in his power to prevent Joe from ruining what is left of his life by committing murder; unfortunately, "our" fugitive is currently behind bars and is helpless to intervene. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Wife Killer In Baker City, Ohio, newspaper reporter Barbara Webb (Janice Rule) publishes the photo of a murder suspect (Bill Raisch) whom fugitive Richard Kimble (David Janssen) recognizes as Fred Johnson, the One-Armed Man who killed his wife. As a result, Kimble rushes to Baker City in hopes of collaring the man who has so long eluded. . .while at the same time, Lt. Gerard heads to the same city for the essentially same purpose. The plot takes an unexpected twist when, during a jailbreak, Johnson is seriously injured, and Kimble struggles to keep alive long enough to make a confession--with Barbara as the witness. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Echo of a Nightmare After he is robbed and beaten by a gang of punks, Richard Kimble (David Janssen)--or as he is currently identifying himself, "Richard Taylor"--falls under the scrutiny of ambitious policewoman Jane Washburn (Shirley Knight). Her suspicions aroused by the fact that Kimble refuses to report the mugging to the authorities, Jane handcuffs herself to the fugitive, determined not to let him leave her side until she finds out his whole story. This fascinating gender-bending variation on the 1957 "chase" film The Defiant Ones) reaches a nailbiting climax when both Kimble and his lovely captor find themselves at the mercy of a gun-wielding backwoodsman. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Shadow of the Swan Now using the alias "Paul Keller", Kimble (David Janssen) gets a job at a carnival with the help of pretty Tina Andresen (Joanna Pettet). Unfortunately, Tina's uncle Harry (Andrew Duggan) is a retired detective with a very suspicious mind. . .and he's certain he's seen Kimble's face somewhere before. Having falling in love with the fugitive, Tina offers to help him escape--only to reveal herself as a dangerous psychotic when Kimble refuses to take her along with him. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Running Scared Upon learning of the death of his father, fugitive Richard Kimble (David Janssen) arranges a secret meeting with his sister Donna (Jacqueline Scott) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. What Donna doesn't know is that her every move is being monitored by Mike Ballinger (James Daly), the prosecutor who presided over Kimble's murder trial. Figuring that something is afoot, Ballinger alerts Lt. Gerard (Barry Morse)--and it looks as if Kimble is finally going to be ensared in an inescapable trap. Lin McCarthy appears in this episode as the latest of several actors cast as Donna's long-suffering husband Len Taft. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: The Chinese Sunset As "Jack Fickett", Kimble (David Janssen) lands a general-purpose job at a motel called "The Chinese Sunset." Unfortunately, the motel is currently under police surveillance, due to the presence of big-time bookie Eddie Slade (Paul Richards) and his slovenly girl friend Penelope (Laura Devon). Touched by Penelope's pathetic lack of social skills, Kimble generously offers to teach her how to be a "proper lady"--little realizing the danger in which he is placing himself. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Ill Wind This episode is something of a family affair, with John McIntire, his wife Jeanette Nolan and their son Tim McIntire) cast in key roles. As "Mike Johnson", Kimble (David Janssen) blends into a community of migrant workers, befriending the nomadic Kelly family. Arriving in the community, Lt. Gerard threatens Lester Kelly (John McIntire) with arrest unless he reveals Kimble's whereabouts. But before Gerard can move in for the capture, a hurricane sweeps through the area, forcing everyone to take refuge in a single, none-too-solid structure. Ultimately, Kimble finds himself in the ironic position of begging the migrants to donate blood in order to save Gerard's life--even while the storm continues to rage all around them. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: With Strings Attached Posing as "Frank Carter", Kimble (David Janssen) is hired as chauffeur for pampered 17-year-old violin prodigy Geoffrey Martin (Rex Thompson). Bored with his musical career, Geoffrey would like to escape his omnipresent teacher-guardian Max Pfeiffer (Donald Pleasance), but is contractually bound to Max until he reaches his 21st birthday. Using the same dexterity with which he handles his violin, Geoffrey persuades Kimble that Max is cruel and abusive--an exagerration that may backfire disastrously. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: The White Knight Glenn Madison (Steven Hill), a war hero with political ambitions, is rescued from a plane crash by Richard Kimble (David Janssen). Normally, this would make Kimble a hero, but both he and Madison are anxious to keep the rescue a secret from the public--Kimble because he is a fugitive from justice, and Madison because his travelling companion was his mistress Pat Haynes (Jessica Walter). But Madison's vengeful wife Claire (Nancy Wickwire) doesn't intend to let her husband, or Kimble, off the hook so easily. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: The 2130 Kimble (David Janssen) covers several states using several aliases in this episode, barely escaping capture at every turn. The reason? Lt. Gerard (Barry Morse) has opted to use technology in his efforts to trap Kimble, and to this end has teamed with electronics expert Dr. Mark Ryder. Utilizing Ryder's state-of-the-art computer "2130", Gerard is now able to anticipate Kimble's every move by evaluating the geographical pattern of the fugitive's travels. For once, it looks as if Kimble has met his match--but machines, like people, are capable of making mistakes. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: Not With a Whimper Using the alias "Richard Spaulding", fugitive Richard Kimble (David Janssen) pays a visit to his former mentor Dr. Andrew McAllister (Laurence Naismith), now gravely ill and confined to a wheelchair. Because of his virulent "anti-smog" campaign, McAllister is regarded by most people as a harmless crank. The truth, however, is that the doctor has become mentally unhinged, and he intends to lob a spectacular final "protest" against a local smoke-belching factory by destroying it with a bomb--with Kimble unwittingly delivering the explosives. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Fugitive: In a Plain Paper Wrapper As "Bob Stoddard", Kimble (David Janssen) works as a bartender at the same restaurant where Susan Cartwright (Lois Nettelton) is a waitress. Recognizing Kimble from a police description, Susan's nephew Gary (Pat Cardi) and his pals decide to capture the fugitive and claim the reward, using a mail-order rifle for this purpose. Things become even stickier when a social worker arrives to determine if Susan is a fit guardina for the orphaned Gary--and likewise recognizes Kimble for who he really is. Featured in the cast are 16-year-old Kurt Russell and his actor father Bing Russell). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

However, when one of the quartet members is forced to drop out just before a big musical contest in Albany, Viv decides to give Lucy a chance. Of course, this requires our heroine to take some singing lessons in a hurry--and inasmuch as the inimitable Hans Conried is cast as the flustered music teacher, it's not hard to determine what happens next! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and Viv Put in a Shower There just isn't enough space in a single bathroom for the five members of the Carmichael-Bagley household, thus Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Viv (Vivian Vance) decide to install an extra shower. Neighbor Harry (Dick Martin) arranges for a plumber to do the job cheap, only to have the plumber quit in disgust over Lucy's constant meddling. Clearly, there is no other alternative for the girls than to finish the job themselves. This is the notorious episode in which Vivian Vance actually rescues Lucille Ball from drowning while the cameras are rolling! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and Carol in Palm Springs In the concluding episode of a two-part story, Lucy's roommate Carol Bradford (Carol Burnett) is hired along with The Vagabonds to perform a musical act at an upcoming Palm Springs golf tournament. When she is invited to accompany Carol to the gig, Lucy (Lucille Ball) feigns illness so she can skip work. Upon her arrival at Palm Springs, Lucy is fixed up with a date with handsome movie actor Collin Grant (Dan Rowan)--who happens to be the golfing partner of Lucy's boss Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon). Carol, Lucy and The Vagabonds (including an uncredited Joe Pesci!) perform "Lazy River" and "The Hukilau Song." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and George Burns Season Five of The Lucy Show begins, typically enough, with a guest star--in this instance the ageless George Burns. While doing business with banker Mooney (Gale Gordon), Burns confides that he is working up a new nightclub act: All he needs is a "kooky" female partner. Enter Mooney's secretary Lucy (Lucille Ball), who proceeds to amaze Burns with a convoluted explanation of her unique filing system. Duly impressed, Burns invites Lucy to join him on stage--and what follows is not only a fond recreation of the old "Burns and Allen" days (with Lucy, of course, as Gracie), but also a song-and-dance duet to the tune of the old Sophie Tucker standard "Some of These Days." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy, the Bean Queen In desperate need of money for new furniture, Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Mary Jane (Mary Jane Croft) attempt to take advantage of an advertising campaign created by Col. Andrew Bailey (Ed Begley), aka "The Bean King." Succeeding at getting double her money back on a can of Colonel Bailey's Bean, Lucy and Mary Jane go through the same rigmarole time and time again, until the two ladies have managed to collect $1500. What our heroines don't know is that Lucy's boss Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) is Colonel Bailey's biggest investor! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and the Submarine Called up for two weeks' service as a
