Description - Lucy at the Movies by Cindy De la Hoz

The world knows her as the First Lady of Television, but Lucille Ball's talent also shone brightly on the cinema screen in over eighty films spanning five decades, most from Hollywood's glamorous golden age of the 1930s and '40s. Lucy at the Movies is a long overdue showcase for this area of the star's career, offering behind-the-scenes stories and essential information for every film in which she appeared. The pages are filled with rare photos of the beautiful young actress, many from her own first scrapbooks. Explored from her days as a showgirl through blonde, brunette, and "Tango Red" incarnations, from black-and-white through glorious Technicolor, this is a complete reference guide and a tribute to a star and an era. "Lucy at the Movies was an enormous undertaking. But it's clear that it was also a labor of love. My mother would be very impressed and flattered ...The value in this encyclopedia is the information on, not only the film career of Lucille Ball, but the way films were made. It's an invaluable history of the motion picture industry and those who first created it."--Lucie Arnaz
