MGM Stars

They say that MGM had more stars than heaven did, and guess what, I found this rare picture of the stars of MGM, celebrating Louis B Mayer's birthday! Okay, actually, this photo is available everywhere, but I never typed those keywords. That's the problem with the Internet: you have to know what you are finding; there's no such thing as random browsing.

Anyway, here it is:
I've always known that Lucille Ball is in this picture (I mean, look at her symbolic red hair!), but someone from Instagram told me that her husband Desi Arnaz was in the picture too! That made me so excited! Can you spot him?
