She also had a short-lived career as a Broadway actress before being discovered by movie studio executives. Ball appeared in nearly 70 films throughout her career, including the classics "Stage Door" and "The Long, Long Trailer." Despite her comedic success on screen, Ball's personal life was often tumultuous. She had a strained relationship with her first husband, bandleader Desi Arnaz, and struggled with alcoholism.
