Desi's End of Life

Recommended Posts

http://books.google.com/books?id=4Xf4PP2KdNEC&pg=PA67&lpg=PA67&dq=%22Edie+Arnaz%22&source=bl&ots=WU_4Z0gKC5&sig=Mk6RArsstEARLKzYHRhVVnX9okU&hl=en&sa=X&ei=gzSUUYS_Ke_K0AHWoYC4CA&ved=0CC8Q6AEwATgK#v=onepage&q=%22Edie%20Arnaz%22&f=false

 

On page 67 of this book you can see that 1/3 of A Book was not released because it was too depressing. I wish it would have been released to realistically picture what had happened in the 16 years since the divorce. I think Desi's life ended the worse of the four stars. Lucy had her depressing moments but died beloved by a shower of cards and well wishes and a standing ovation. Vivian had her quiet life and despite her cancer died optismtic. William got to enjoy My Three Sons and wasn't sick long before he died. However, drugs and drinking and lack of projects drained poor Desi.

This really is sad. Desi was such a bright talented man. But his drinking prevented him from finishing many of his projects after I Love Lucy. Its the tragedy of alcholism. :(

I enjoyed the analysis of LLT and FD. Page back a few for those.

 

Im only able to read certain pages from the book online. I don't have it(yet). Can you clue me in?

I started at the link, was able to advance to the end of the chapter, and back to somewhere in the min 50's.

 

Ok. I could make it to the end chapter but much of the middle was "unavailable". So what was said about the mid 50'?

Ok thanks. The book really looks interesting. Sad but interesting. The part about Desi keeping a list of Lucy's other lovers made me laugh. The man was so possesive of her! :marionstrong::lucydesi:

Thanks for this link, Will. I saved it to read when I have more time. I remember reading Desi's book & hearing his voice & accent as I read :desi1: . I wish he had lived long enough to write Part 2.

Thanks for sharing this, Will! I think it's very hard that some of those biographies will be published here in Brazil.
I didn't know that the last days of Desi had been so sad... :(
