PREMISE:

Helpful Lucy thinks husband Ricky could use some added publicity in the society columns, so she poses as visiting royalty. She disguises herself as the Maharincess of Franistanand -- who has traveled halfway around the world just to see her singing idol, Ricky Ricardo... And believe it or not, the ploy works -- her arrival at the Tropicana in Middle-Eastern garb attracts the press, but after singing 25 songs (every other one "Bababu"), Ricky begins to catch on. He decides to turn the tables, and hopefully teach Lucy a lesson...
