Happy 101st Birthday Lucy
Let’s face it, we all “Love Lucy”, and today, it’s Lucille Ball’s birthday. She would have been 101 years old today. To celebrate, Jamestown, NY, Lucy’s birthplace held “Lucy Fest” this past week. Just a personal note, my daughter happens to be a big Lucy fan and has many books, DVDs and Lucy memorabilia.
Here’s a brief bio of Lucille Ball, courtesy of Wikipedia:
“Lucille Désirée Ball (August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989) was an American comedian, film, television, stage and radio actress, model, film and television executive, and star of the sitcoms I Love Lucy, The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy and Life With Lucy.
Ball began acting in the 1930s, becoming both a radio actress and B-movie star in the 1940s, and then a television star during the 1950s. She was still making films in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1962, Ball became the first woman to run a major television studio, Desilu, which produced many successful and popular television series.”
