    Lucille Ball of "I Love Lucy' would have been 100 today!

    This is the famous candy conveyer belt scene with her and Ethel...

    She was a real beauty when she was a younger woman.

    I never really cared for her kind of humor but I don't doubt I saw all her earlier shows when I was a kid.

    She was considered one of greatest 'physical' comedians. I thought I saw that TV Land was going to be airing back-to-back episodes in the next couple of days where you might be able to see some of her earlier stuff.

    She was a great comedian, I like editech did not like her bent of comedy.


    I really think it was the restrictions on her charactors because of the times.

    Women had to be subserviant to their Hubbies in public society.

    Her charactor ( out of what the public would accept I bet) left me unsympathetic for her charactor.

    She was awsome at what she did.

    It just did not flip my switch.

    I would love to have seen what she would have done with our times where women are just barely allowed to be a full blown equal edge pusher like the men.

    Lucile Ball was one of the greatest. She could act, dance, sing, or do stand up. She was a very beautiful, talented, and intelligent woman.
