Melvin Belli???  Isn't $36,750,000 an ODD, rather specific amount?  I wonder what happened with the suit.  If Desi had lost and been ordered to pay a lot, we probably would have heard about it.   Interesting that 4 years post-divorce, Desi is still being referred to as "former husband of Lucille Ball".  Friend of the Youngs: "You know Desi's temper!".  The Youngs: "Yeah, we've met."
