Below we will provide interesting information about Lucille Ball and the show she was most famous for doing.
Besides being an actress, Lucille Ball became the first woman to run a major television studio. And she was good at it, too! Her studio produced Star Trek and Mission: Impossible among other things. It seemed that whatever Lucille Ball put her mind to, she succeeded at.
She was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards and won the honor four times. She won many other awards and honor during her lifetime. But in 1984, she was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame and in 1986 won a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ball was born in Jamestown, New York, where a bronze statute of her has since been erected in the town square. The first artist’s attempt failed miserably. Everyone considered the statute to be “scary” and wanted it removed. Eventually, another sculptor took a stab at the project and delivered a stunning likeness of the beloved actress. The new statue of Lucille Ball was unveiled in August 2016.
Lucy first complained of chest pains while at home in Beverly Hills in 1989. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent about 8 hours of heart surgery. She recovered and received countless well-wishes from all over Hollywood and the world. But then about a week later, she died from a second aortic rupture.
