Over thirty years ago, the undisputed queen of comedy sat down to record the story of her life. Lucille Ball was at the pinnacle of her success in show business, having teamed with Desi Arnaz (whom she had married in 1940) to make I Love Lucy and The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour and, after her divorce from Desi, The Lucy Show. No comedienne had made America laugh so hard, no television actress had made the leap from Ziegfeld, radio, and film to land on the nation's picture tubes with such zany style and comedic charm. Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo was a part of our lives then - and forty-five years later she still is.
A recently discovered treasure, Love, Lucy is the valentine Lucille Ball left for her fans - the story of the ingenue from Jamestown, New York, determined to go to Broadway, destined to make a big splash, bound to marry her Valentino, Desi Arnaz. It tells of their life together - both storybook and turbulent: intimate stories of their children and friends; wonderful backstage anecdotes; the creation of the most popular show on TV; the production empire they founded; the dissolution of their marriage. And, with a heartfelt happy ending, her enduring marriage to Gary Morton.
