A Tribute to Lucille Ball
Lucille Ball was unquestionably the biggest female television star of her time. At one point, an unprecedented two-thirds of the TV sets in America were regularly tuned to I Love Lucy on Monday nights. But she had a long movie career even before that happened, appearing in about 75 films from 1929 to 1949, mostly in bit or supporting parts. She was a Ziegfeld Girl and a Goldwyn Girl, and yet she rose from the crowd of leggy starlets to become the first woman to own a film studio. She was born Lucille Desiree Ball in Jamestown, New York, on August 6, 1911. Like many other stars, she had a rough childhood, but was determined to be somebody. She attended the same New York drama school as Bette Davis, but didn't stick. Modeling led her to be a Goldwyn Girl in 1933. She made her film debut that same year in

For a short time also Ball attended Marble Collegiate Church (Dutch Reform), run by Norman Vincent Peale , but never considered herself a member of the Dutch Reformed Church. In her own words, "It was a beautiful ceremony and I believed in it. At the time, I seriously intended to become a Catholic. I took instruction for a long time, but lost the inspiration when I realized that Catholicism did not seem to help Desi in his life." Her second husband, Gary Morton, was a Jew.

  • Born: 6 August 1911 Birthplace: Jamestown, New York Died: 26 April 1989 (heart failure) Best Known As: Star of TV's I Love Lucy
For more than a decade Lucille Ball was American TV's most popular comedienne, known for her blazing red hair and slapstick situation comedy gags. She starred in five different TV shows during her career; the original, I Love Lucy (1951-57), became one of the great TV landmarks of the 1950s. The show was consistently #1 in the ratings, attracted guest stars like John Wayne and Orson Welles , and continued in reruns for decades. I Love Lucy also starred Ball's real-life husband, Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz; the couple had two children, Desi Jr. and Lucie, and formed a successful TV production company known as Desilu. (Ball and Arnaz were divorced in 1960, and Ball later married producer and TV personality Gary Morton.) Ball's last series, Life With Lucy , ran briefly in 1986.

BALL, LUCILLE U.S. Actor/Comedienne Lucille Ball was one of television's foremost pioneers and, quite likely, the preeminent woman in the history of television. As a young contract player for MGM, Ball began her career as a Goldwyn Girl, eventually moving up to become a moderately respected star of "B" movies. She came to television after nearly 20 years in motion pictures, having undergone a gradual transformation from a platinum blonde sex symbol to a wise-cracking redhead. Her first television program, I Love Lucy , premiered 15 October 1951 and for the next 25 years Lucille Ball virtually ruled the airwaves in a series of situation comedies designed to exploit her elastic expressions, slapstick abilities and distinct verbal talents. A five-time Emmy award winner, the first woman inducted into the Television Academy's Hall of Fame, a recipient of a Genii Award and a Kennedy Center Honor, Lucille Ball was perhaps the most beloved of all television stars, and certainly the most recognizable. In all of her television series, the protagonist she played was at once beautiful, zany, inept and talented. Her comedic skills were grounded in the style of the silent comics, and Buster Keaton, with whom she once shared an office at MGM, seems to have been particularly influential in the development of Lucy's daring exploits, hang-dog expressions, and direct looks at the audience. Although she personally fueled the myth that much of her performance was ad-libbed, in actuality, every move was choreographed. An accomplished perfectionist, she spent days practicing a particular routine before incorporating it into her programs. So distinct were her rubbery facial expressions, that scriptwriters for

Intro: Technology Shaped the Show
21st Century: The Future of Arts
Monday, June 8, 1998
It happened somewhere between the clunky premier episode ( Lucy Thinks Ricky Is Trying to Murder Her ) and her first classic routine, the Vitameatavegamin commercial, in which Lucy gets steadily soused as she keeps downing spoonfuls of the alcohol-laced potion she's trying to hawk on TV. (Watch the spasm that jolts her face when she gets her first taste of the foul brew; it could serve as a textbook for comics well into the next millennium.) I Love Lucy debuted on CBS in October 1951, but at first it looked little different from other domestic comedies that were starting to make the move from radio to TV, like My Favorite Husband , the radio show Ball had co-starred in for three years. Lucy Ricardo was, in those early I Love Lucy episodes, just a generic daffy housewife. Ethel (Vivian Vance), her neighbor and landlady, was a stock busybody. Desi Arnaz, as bandleader Ricky Ricardo, hadn't yet become one of the finest straight men in TV history. William Frawley, as Fred Mertz, seemed a Hollywood has-been in search of work, which he was.

F or more than thirty years, Lucille Ball was one of the most recognized and loved entertainers in the world. Known to all simply as Lucy, she portrayed a scatterbrained housewife with the ability to turn simple chores into unparalleled fiascoes. Clumsy and unsophisticated at nearly everything she tried (and she tried nearly everything), the television Lucy won the hearts of average Americans across all social and cultural lines with her wacky schemes. Ironically, it was Ball's wide range of experience and talents that made her such a success in this role. Dropping out of high school at the age of fifteen, Ball moved to New York to study acting and found her first stage work as a chorus girl in 1927. She had her first break as a poster-girl for Chesterfield cigarettes and soon found herself in tinsel town as one of twelve slave-girls in the Eddie Cantor film, ROMAN SCANDALS (1933). By the mid-1930s, if you went to the movies (and in the 1930s everyone went to the movies) you would be certain to see Lucille Ball. Sometimes a nurse or a dancer, sometimes a flower clerk or a college girl, but always there. By the end of the decade she had been in forty-three films and was known as "Queen of the B Movies." Though universally recognized as a true talent and charismatic performer, Ball had yet to find the niche that would shoot her to super-stardom. From one film to the next her roles would change from the seriously dramatic to the light-hearted romantic lead. Dramas, Comedies, Musicals, she would and could do anything. But it wasn't until her part on the radio show "My Favorite Husband" that her true genius appeared. "My Favorite Husband" was a situation comedy about a housewife who was always getting into trouble. Over the airwaves, Ball's beauty and grace were invisible and what was left was that perfect comic timing and tone. With a pause, a stutter or a firmly asserted absurdity she could express all of the quirky awkwardness of physical comedians like Keaton, Chaplin, or the Marx Brothers, and the audiences ate it up.

Early Life
At least one biographer has suggested that the grief associated with the loss of her father drove Lucille into playacting. Whether true or not, Ball's recollections of early childhood were, for the most part, happy. She and her brother lived with doting grandparents and a strong, independent mother. Her grandfather, Fred Hunt, was an eccentric socialist who enjoyed the theater. He frequently took the family to local vaudeville shows and encouraged young Lucy to take part in both her own and school plays. At the age of fifteen, Lucy dropped out of high school, and with her mother's approval, enrolled in the John Murray Anderson/Robert Milton School of the Theater in New York City. Among her fellow students was Bette Davis. At this stage in Ball's life, she was hopelessly beyond her element. Nervous and shy in a large city she hated, Ball lasted only six weeks at the school and returned to Celoron.
