Description by

Meet the Mertzes is an expansive dual biography chronicling the lives of two of America's most popular situation-comedy actors, William Frawley and Vivian Vance, who portrayed Fred and Ethel Mertz on "I Love Lucy." This meticulously researched book contains interviews with Frawley's and Vance's colleagues, friends, and relatives, and explores their personal and professional lives before, during, and after "I Love Lucy." With a complete filmography and videography of each, Meet the Mertzes finally sets the record straight on the lives and legacies of these compelling stars who detested one another. Learn about Vance's successful Broadway career prior to "I Love Lucy"; Frawley's vaudevillian roots and his passion for baseball; Vance's nervous breakdown after the collapse of her first marriage; Frawley's drinking and carousing; Lucille Ball's caustic relationship with both of her costars; and Vance's hatred of being known to the world as Ethel Mertz.
