This talk from Great Neck library will celebrate the life and career of Lucille Ball. She came from humble origins, but became one of the most powerful women in Hollywood and the first woman to run a major studio. She also entertained us, and remains one of the best comediennes ever seen. Moderately successful in “B” movies, it was television that really solidified her career. I Love Lucy has virtually never been off the air since it began in 1951. The show established her as a major television star, but also set the model for the situation comedy. Three more series followed, and Lucy kept doing what she did best, making people laugh. She has received every award there is for television, and numerous honors and recognition. Though she died in 1989, we still love Lucy!
