I love Lucy was never just a title

Every time I watch a documentary on artists I love who passed away breaks me down to tears. Every. Single. Time. Considering how much I love Lucy and Desi and their show I should have seen it coming a mile away. Even the latest motion picture, Being the Ricardos, has done that to me as well. That says something.

Something that has to be said: that Lucy and Desi's story still resonates even after 60 years after their divorce and 30 years since their deaths - it's something that will always be in the memory of everyone who knew them, their work and their relationship. A love that never dies, even when the marriage falls apart - a true love will never end. And that's the point of life.

No one will live forever but the love of two people will continue on living in the children and many many millions of other people whose lives were touched by those two. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz is a story for all ages and what they have created is immeasurable in terms of greatness.

I loved Lucy and Desi, the documentary, and I will love them for as long as I live.

Informative and moving

This was a well put together documentary on both Lucy and Desi. I've seen lots of things about Lucille Ball so I was familiar with some of what was shared in this but I didn't know much about Desi and his life in Cuba or his start in the entertainment industry. I think it was great that their children were involved in the making of this. There were some surprises about them and great home footage. Anyone who wants to learn more about the both of them and have a look at what went on behind the scenes of "I love Lucy" then this is the documentary to watch.

An excellent current Amazon Prime documentary on Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz Jr. On how they met & became one of the most famous & powerful married couples in television history. Directed by Amy Poehler (a nice feather in her cap after her Netflix film Moxie from last year) we get a balanced retracing of Lucy & Desi's hard scrabble rise to power in their respective fields before meeting during the filming of the 1940 film Too Many Girls. Hoping to translate their marriage into a project (after work shopping the ideas vaudeville style during Desi's musical tour) soon led to I Love Lucy (even though the powers that be didn't think their interracial marriage would go over w/Middle America) which would garner audiences in the millions. Through a red scare & extramarital infidelities (detailed in Aaron Sorkin's recent Meet the Ricardos biopic), the show endured even though the marriage didn't but their impact on television history is undeniable & in some circles never matched. Featuring talking heads like Bette Midler, Norman Lear, Carol Burnett, Charo (?) & Lucy's daughter Lucie Arnaz, the family is both humanized & lionized for posterity.
