Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00042251: LUCILLE BALL & DESI ARNAZ

Rare and adorable 8x10-inch black and white portrait of the famed couple cheek-to-cheek, boldly and individually signed in their respective hands in later years in fine-point black felt-tip ink, with Desi adding the inscription to a well-known autograph collector. A tiny bend to the bottom left corner tip; otherwise very fine condition. Long before she established her persona of the trouble-making redhead on classic sitcoms "I Love Lucy" (1951-1957), "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1957-1960), "The Lucy Show" (1962-1968), "Here's Lucy" (1968-1974), and "Life with Lucy" (1984), Lucille Ball was a Goldwyn girl, lending glitz and glamour to films like Roman Scandals (1933), Kid Millions (1934), Top Hat (1935), Stage Door (1937), and The Big Street (1942). It was during the filming of Too Many Girls in 1940 that she met and eloped with Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz, forming the beloved comedy team of the 1950s. Beyond playing Lucy and Ricky, the pair was also unforgettable as Tacy and Nicky in the 1953 comedy The Long, Long Trailer.
