About Lucille Ball (1911 – 1989)
Lucille Ball was born on August 6, 1911 in Jamestown, New York.

On April 26,1989 Lucille Ball passed away from acute aorta aneurysm in Beverly Hills, California.

Sometimes Lucille Ball was credited as Diane Belmont. Lucille Ball had several nicknames, including Technicolor Tessie, Queen of the B movies, First Lady of Television, The Queen of Comedy and of course, "Lucy".

For Lucille Ball's role in Roman Scandals in 1933 as a slave girl she had to shave her eyebrows; they are said to have never grown back.

Lucille Ball was married twice, her first husband of course being Desi Arnaz. They were together for nearly twenty years. Her second husband was Gary Morton – they married on November 19, 1961 and stayed together until Lucille Ball's death in 1989.

Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball had two children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr.; both of them followed in their parents' show business footsteps.

Fun trivia: In 1953 Desi Arnaz Jr. and Lucille Ball appeared together on the very first cover of TV Guide magazine.

Lucy will always be remembered as the crazy redhead Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo – the housewife who desperately wanted to be a star. Viewers watched her comic misadventures for over 130 episodes of the hit TV series I Love Lucy.

In 2001 the Postal Service released a commemorative postage stamp with Lucille Ball's picture as part of its Legends of Hollywood series. In 2002 Ball was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.

Lucy was one of the 20 original Goldwyn Girls, along with Virginia Bruce, Ann Dvorak, Paulette Goddard and Betty Grable, among others.

She followed the I Love Lucy TV series with Life With Lucy, and Here's Lucy, neither of which equalled the popularity of her first show.

Before she made it big, Lucille Ball had uncredited roles in a variety of movies, including Winterset, Muss'em Up, The Three Musketeers, Top Hat, Old Man Rhythm, I'll Love You Always, Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back, Murder At The Vanities, The Affairs Of Cellini, Jealousy, Broadway Bill, Men Of The Night, and Kid Millions, to name just a few.
