I Love Lucy: Lucille Ball's Movies In Memoriam
Lucille Ball movies would take the world by storm, however, breaking into the acting scene would prove to be harder than Lucille anticipated. Intent on building up her resume, Lucille would move to Hollywood in the early 1930s gaining small parts in films such as Three Little Pigskins (1934) and Top Hat (1935).
1937 would finally bring the larger role Lucille was seeking as an aspiring actress in Stage Door. Performing alongside her distant cousin Ginger Rogers and the famed Katharine Hepburn would begin to gain her the attention she desired!
After starring on the hit CBS radio show My Favorite Husband, CBS asked Lucille Ball to adapt the series for television. Insistent on starring alongside her husband Desi Arnaz, CBS was originally reluctant until watching the success of the pair's vaudeville act.
CBS finally agreed to air the show on television as I Love Lucy and the show would become a huge success running for six seasons and producing a number of sequel series like The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy. In addition to television, Lucille Ball movies would also become popular!
