FB Adventures: We All Love Lucy
This post of mine came from a FB group called, "Glitter & Glitz and Bitches Pitchin' Fitz." I only found this page today, but it's full of fun photos.
In this post, the admin put up a photo of Lucille Ball dressed up as Marilyn Monroe from the amnesia episode of "I Love Lucy."
The Original Redhead taking on the Blonde Bombshell!
People can forget how groundbreaking Lucy was. She had (on TV & in real life) an interracial marriage during a time when it was still illegal in many parts of the country. She formed and ran a business at a time when most women in business were secretaries and girls were encouraged to go to college to get an MRS degree. She was the first pregnant woman on television at a time when you couldn't even say the word "pregnant" on the airwaves (she had to use the word "expecting" instead). She excelled at physical comedy during a time when that was widely considered a male-only art.
Why did Lucy have red hair? The natural result of blazing so many trails.
