I Love Lucy
August 6, 2011 by Post Team
I Love Lucy, I Love Lucy was really a show that deserves recognition as one of the best of all time. Yes, we love Lucy and Desi and her great love story, but also about her relationship with her best friend.
Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz were Laverne & Shirley in the generation before them. They were the Cagney & Lacey. Charlie’s Angels. Even the sex and the ladies of the city. There were great female characters, strong and beautiful, with their own lives and desires and dreams, and their own absurd antics. And in the 1950′s that was a big step for women.
She does remind me of my Aunt Tena, a very influential in my life, I used to watch repeats of I Love Lucy. A fiery redhead with a pretty mouth of the lipstick saying things like “You really have to love yourself to do anything in this world.” So true.
In reading over 20 of the best quotes from Lucille Ball I remember how amazing the woman was behind Lucy, the character we saw on television. She would have turned 100 years old. And still inspires me.
Women are not respected in the world of comedy. A sad reality. But Lucille Ball was and still is. And that’s what he did and was able to do on television.
Like the big candy factory episode where Lucy and Ethel work the conveyor and have to pack the sweets, as they came through. They get their rhythm going, but then speeds up and to keep start to push the candy in the mouth, their shirts, and that ridiculous hat baker who had to carry. Hilarious!
We cannot forget how Lucy’s pregnancy was written into the show, which also included a nativity scene.
Or even the next episode where Lucy and Ethel sing “Friendship”. It makes me realize how important are the relationships between women.
