Today we will introduce to you one of their most popular sitcoms “I Love Lucy” as well as the comedy film “The Long, Long Trailer,” co-starring this lovely couple.

Set in an apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City, “I Love Lucy” centers on the life of a young couple Lucy Ricardo and Ricky Ricardo, portrayed by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, respectively. Ricky is a talented Cuban-American singer and bandleader at the Tropicana nightclub. Lucy is a devoted housewife and skillful cook, taking good care of Ricky. They may not be perfect, but Lucy and Ricky truly love and care for each other, always reconciling no matter what happens. “I Love Lucy” is not only fantastically funny and entertaining, but the stories also show the audience how true love can cure everything and move millions of hearts. Often regarded as one of the greatest and most influential sitcoms in history, “I Love Lucy” has won four Emmy Awards.

“The Long, Long Trailer” is an Ansco Color road comedy based on the 1951 novel of the same name by Clinton Twiss. Lucille and Desi play a young newlywed couple Tacy and Nicky. Civil engineer Nicholas Collini, or Nicky, gets a new job which requires him to travel often. Tacy suggests that they buy a small, affordable trailer so that they can save on rent as well as stay together while travelling around the country. They visit the trailer show, and not only is Nicky persuaded to buy the largest trailer exhibited, but he also ends up getting a new car too! The couple gets on the road where the fun and troubles begin.
