If you love TV's "I Love Lucy" as so many people seem to, then you're sure to treasure this well-researched, pictorial history of this phenomenally popular 1950's, Sit-Com that, even today (more than 50 years later), is still being enjoyed by audiences (young & old) all across the North American continent, and beyond.

This fine book is, by far, the ultimate tribute to the most popular series in television history. This is the only book to draw from dozens of exclusive interviews with "I Love Lucy's" stars, and its creators, as well.

You'll thrill to the saga of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, one of the most talked-about couples of the 20th Century. You'll be present at the creation of the show's unforgettable characters and learn what became of the people who played them. And, you'll relive the entire history of the show (not only the tragedies, but also the triumphs) whose profound impact on American and worldwide TV cultures is still being felt to this very day, in so many ways.

This excellent book features over 1000 photographs, many never before published and many in full colour.... (*Watch classic "I Love Lucy" video-clip*)
