Lucille Ball loved Desi Arnaz very much. She knew that she was a little older than Desi, but that didn't stop her. She had a happy marriage on stage, but off stage was another story. Desi cheated on her so many times. So, she decided to do a show on tv to keep her marriage happy. So, they named the show "I Love Lucy". She went through tough times with a miscarriage and her marriage. She still is and was the funniest lady in comedy.
Publishers Weekly, 1993-01-04 Forty-two years after I Love Lucy premiered on TV, this first dual biography of Lucille Ball (1911-1989) and Desi Arnaz (1917-1986) painstakingly details their business and personal dealings. The famed redhead and her Cuban husband, who met as young Hollywood contract players, pioneered TV situation comedy by starring in their own series and founding Desilu Productions, which was responsible for such other hit shows as Star Trek and Mission Impossible . Colleagues, friends and relatives--particularly daughter Lucie Arnaz--contribute to this telling of the team's successes and failures. Lucille's obsessive involvements with her co-stars and children and Desi's alcoholism and womanizing come to stand out in sharp contrast to the zany TV antics of Lucy and Desi, who remain beloved by the viewing public worldwide. The book will disappoint fans, however, due to excessive attention paid to the finances of Desilu Productions. Sanders is the author of Rainbow's End: The Judy Garland Show ; Gilbert is an editor for Daily Variety. Photos not seen by PW. (Feb.)
