I love Lucy! And so does Google, which has created an interactive Doodle to commemmorate Lucille Ball's 100th birthday.
If the sitcom redhead was alive today she would be a centenarian. Born Lucille Désirée Ball on Aug. 6, 1911, Ball is remembered for her goofy comedy and often bubbly personality. She was also an inspiration to many female comedians who came after her.
The Internet Movie Database, or IMDb, describes Lucille Ball as a show business powerhouse and television pioneer.
"Throughout her teen years, Ball tried unsuccessfully to launch her show business career, finally landing a spot as a Ziegfeld Girl," according to IMDb. "She launched her Hollywood career as one of the Goldwyn Girls, but she moved out from the crowd of starlets to starring roles. With I Love Lucy (1951), she and husband Desi Arnaz pioneered the 3-camera technique now the standard in filming TV sitcoms, and the concept of syndicating television programs. She was also the first woman to own her own film studio as the head of Desilu.
TV Guide has voted Lucille Ball as the Greatest TV Star of All Time. She has also appeared on the cover of TV Guide more than any other person, appearing on 39 covers to include the first cover in 1953 with her baby son Desi Arnaz, Jr.
Ball died on April 26, 1989 from a dissecting aortic aneurysm. She was 77.
