Lucy

Two movies were created in attempts to tell the story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. This movie – the better of the two, was created in 2003. Rachel York portrays Lucille Ball. This story is about Lucy’s life up until ‘The Moustache’, the last episode of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour aired in 1961. Danny Pino plays a great Desi Arnaz and seems very in touch with his character. Rachel York also plays a great Lucy but just doesn’t exactly measure as she is just not Lucy. But all in all, the set was great in creating a 1920-1960 feel throughout the movie and for having such huge shoes to fill – was all in all a success. ESPECIALLY when compared to the early film about their life.

  1. Lol…. Isn’t Lucy just one of your favorite screen characters.. she’s mine. It’s funny the very first thing I was ever grounded for was getting caught staying up wa—-y past my bedtime after being told not to do it again like 5 times. Every time I was of course watching I Love Lucy.

    It’s true, I do LOVE Lucy.
