Remembered as a dizzy sitcom redhead with show business aspirations, Lucille Ball was, in fact, a show business powerhouse and television pioneer. Throughout her teen years, Ball tried unsuccessfully to launch her show business career, finally landing a spot as a "Ziegfeld Girl". She launched her Hollywood career as one of the "Goldwyn Girls", but she moved out from the crowd of starlets to starring roles. With "I Love Lucy" (1951), she and husband Desi Arnaz pioneered the 3-camera technique now the standard in filming TV sitcoms, and the concept of syndicating television programs. She was also the first woman to own her own film studio as the head of Desilu.

  • Suffered third miscarriage in 1950 with husband 'Desi Arnaz' (qv).
  • Inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 2002.
  • (3 March 1960) Filed for a divorce from husband 'Desi Arnaz' (qv), the day following the last day of filming _"The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1957)_ (qv).
  • Profiled in "Killer Tomatoes: Fifteen Tough Film Dames" bu Ray Hagen and Laura Wagner (McFarland, 2004).
  • Comedian 'John Belushi' (qv) was a fan of her and knew every detail of her life and career.
  • She was fired from working at an ice cream store because she kept forgetting to put bananas in banana splits.
  • During the 1933 filming of _Roman Scandals (1933)_ (qv), young Lucille Ball, portraying a slave girl, needed to have her eyebrows entirely shaved off. They never grew back.
  • Was known for a while as Dianne Belmont back when she was a model.
