It was announced that The Lucille Ball RKO Comedy Collection, Vol. 1 will be released 9/26/11 on DVD with three movies on it not previously released. (That's good!) Carol Meeley (Lucille Ball) is the wife of a dimwitted bank teller (Joe Penner) who finds himself accused of collaborating with a gang of robbers. Carol's only hope of clearing her husband's name is by proving he's not nearly smart enough to be a criminal, in the comedic caper "Go Chase Yourself" (1938). With Richard Lane, June Travis. Next, in order to claim a $20 million inheritance, Nancy Crocker Fleming (Ball) simply hires a temporary husband (James Ellison). But their cross-country trip to Reno for a quickie divorce leads to a series of comedic-and romantic-entanglements, in "Next Time I Marry" (1938). Lee Bowman, Granville Bates co-star. And, some of the greats of radio comedy team up for the frantic farce "Look Who's Laughing" (1941).

Ball co-stars as Bergen's secretary; with Harold Peary, and Jim and Marian Jordan. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono. Two-disc set.
