Desi Arnaz was not only the husband of Lucille Ball and costar of "I Love Lucy", but his contributions to the entertainment world with the creation of Desilu studios will always play a role in shaping show business as we see it today. Below you will find a few Desi Arnaz items from lyrical songbooks to sheet music, most from his pre-television days.
Of all these items, my absolute favorites are The Western Hills Hotel memorabilia. Desi Arnaz owned his own hotel, The Western Hills, in Palm Springs, California. Below you will find an ashtray, dinner plate, a wooden clothing hanger, a matchbook, postcard, hotel brochure and envelope. These items do not come up very often, and whenever they do I try to always add them to my collection.
The TV Life Magazine below is the only TV Based magazine that features Desi Arnaz soley by himself that I own or have ever seen.
