Thumbs up May We All Celebrate Lucille Ball-100 Years

Born on August 6th 1911, I for one would like to remember this Iconic women as she always made me laugh, whether in the movie based on Clinton Twiss's book, The Long Long Trailer, or the old black and white TV shows. Way back then, her humor and brilliant timing was second to none!

Here's a video from NBC's Nightly News that brings many of us back to her. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams: News and videos from the evening broadcast- msnbc.com
Enjoy!

100 years, and she will always be with us!
Love, Terry

Turner Classic Movies is doing a 24 hour movie marathon starring Lucy today. The Long, Long Trailer is on at 2:30 eastern today. Having never seen it, I'm gonna try to this time 'round.

Thanks Jim..... just DVR'd it, never saw it all at one time all the way thru.

Jamestown NY, she was born there, is having a big celebration this weekend. The whole town is Lucyized.
Could be a candidate for a Lucy Rally next year, who can bring the longest trailer?.... I'm sure the local COM would love it.

Thanks for reminding us, she was brilliant! The best part is I enjoyed I Love Lucy just as much as a kid as I do today. That's talent!

We named our beloved Airstream, Lucy, in honor of her. We keep a copy of the Long, Long Trailer in Lucy at all times.

I'm not too old yet (45), but can remember fondly my Saturday afternoon's (if it was raining)...Laurel & Hardy, The Bowery Boys, Abbott & Costello, Wild Wild West and I Love Lucy!

I have 5 children now, and can't imagine any of them having a desire to watch any of those classics which required an attention span of more than 3 seconds...how sad!

I loved Almost everything Lucille Ball appeared in...a real class act and hillarious ta boot.

As she lives on through today and is still very much with us all, a true Gem that touches our hearts forever!!

Same here! Actually Lucy was in regular rotation during the 'after-school' block, so I'd watch it just about every day, along with Gomer Pyle. Sunday mornings were for Laurel & Hardy, Abbot & Costello, and Little Rascals - watched while eating breakfast with Grandpa! - good times
