Desilu : The Story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz

editorial review of Desilu : The Story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz by Coyne. Sanders, Tom Gilbert, courtesy of Amazon.com

The true, behind-the-scenes story of television’s happiest couple, and Hollywood’s most tumultuous marriage.

Desilu : The Story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz

Fifty years ago the magical union of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz enthralled American audiences who couldn’t got enough of the fiery redhead or her sexy Cuban husband. But off camera the situation couldn’t have been less comic, with backstage battles, over-sized egos, drinking, philandering, and the demands of phenomenal success undermining what was once a storybook romance.

With exclusive access to family members (including daughter Lucie Arnaz) and rare photographs, Desilu is the first candid, inside account of a celebrated, complex, passionate, but ultimately tragic relationship—as well as a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at Desilu Studios, the Golden Age of Television’s most powerful production empire.
