Written with the cooperation of Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., who both consented to rare interviews, T"he Lucy Book" is an amazing retrospective of the five-decade television career of America's favorite redhead. Containing hundreds of original interviews with cast members, guest stars, production people, contemporaries, family, and friends, this book will tell you for the first time what it was really like to work with Lucy. Year by year, episode by episode, television appearance by television appearance, you can follow the meteoric careers of this comedy legend. Her five series--"I love Lucy"(1951-57), "The Lucille Ball-Dezi Arnaz Show" (1957-1960), "The Lucy Show" (1962-68), " Here's Lucy" (1968-74), and "Life with Lucy" (1986)--are thoroughly covered, as are her myriad guest appearances on other situation comedies, dramas, games shows, talks hows, variety shows, commercials, and specials. All told, more than 1,000 television appearances are extensively chronicles in this book. "The Lucy Book" contains: --cast and crew information, along with background anecdotes and current interview quotes for each entry.--particulars about several Lucy TV scripts that were never produced.--a critical analysis of Lucy's enormous effect on the television industry.
