From Goldwyn Girl to I Love Lucy
Follow the first lady of comedy from her beginnings to the success of I Love Lucy in this unique collection, and hear in her own words how she went from a schoolgirl in Jamestown, New York, to a Hollywood starlet.
Lucy was hired as a Goldwyn Girl for Eddie Cantor's Roman Scandals, and after a brief stint at Columbia she went RKO, where she made several Astaire/Rogers films and got her first big break in Stage Door. While rehearsing for the musical Too Many Girls in 1940, she met Cuban conga player Desi Arnaz, and their whirlwind courtship, tempestuous marriage and professional partnership were the stuff of Hollywood history. You'll see Lucy's screen appearances with the Marx Brothers, Red Skelton, Abbott & Costello, and Bob Hope, plus memorable moments on and off the set of the show and the films in which she starred with Desi.
