When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were first married in 1940, Desi had to give Lucille a drugstore ring because all of the jewellery stores were closed. She wore that ring for the entire time they were married.
She was scared of birds.
In 1933, she played a slave girl in the film Roman Scandals. She needed to shave her eyebrows for the role and they never grew back.
