Product Overview

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

The magical union of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz created "I Love Lucy"--the greatest, most enduring situation comedy in television history. Yet the overwhelming pressures of fame, backstage battles, oversized egos, and Desi''s philandering and drinking led to the destruction of their star-crossed, tempestuous marriage--but never their love for each other.

This new edition of "Desilu" features a special commentary by Pulitzer Prize-winning TV critic Tom Shales, and includes a brand-new preface and never-before-seen photographs. Written with the close cooperation of family members, including Lucy and Desi''s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, "Desilu" is "the" most candid and balanced inside account of Lucy and Desi''s celebrated, but ultimately tragic, relationship--as well as a fascinating look at the legendary Desilu Studios and the fabled golden age of television.
