  1. She wasn’t Ginger Rogers but she danced a lot better than she pretended to on I Love Lucy. She was so multi-talented. And quite lovely. It takes a confident woman to let herself seem so…goofy.

    • She was really beautiful in her prime, but I was middle aged before I ever saw her in anything other than her sitcoms. I saw her in a bit part in an old b&w movie (I forget which one) and didn’t even know it was her until I saw her name in the credits!


  2. Lucille Ball was truly multi-talented. I read she learned a lot from the people she worked with in the movies like the Marx Brothers. 🙂 — Suzanne

    She was a genuinely funny and very talented entertainer. I’m used to seeing her as Lucy in I love Lucy, so seeing her dancing on stage in a pretty dress is a pleasant surprise.

    We were all used to seeing her mugging for the camera, so many people do not realize how really beautiful she was. Very talented woman.

    And Desi wasn’t the best husband, but he was a very, very smart guy (and really quite handsome.) He developed the multiple-camera setup production style subsequently used in all the sitcoms.

    • In the looks department, she was every bit the equal of other stars of her generation who are remembered as the great beauties. But because she was also funny (and fearless!), that’s what she’s mostly remembered for. She learned early in the game that she could be more than just ornamental. 🙂

    As gorgeous and as funny as she was, she was also a shrewd woman who ran Desilu, where so many great shows were filmed.
