I Love Lucy Poster Gallery forÂ Lucille Ball
Lucille BallÂ is best known for her role asÂ Lucy RicardoÂ on the ground-breaking television series, âI Love Lucy,â co-starring her then-husband Desi Arnaz.Â Many of the best-known moments of that series are here, such as the famous âCandy Factoryâ scene with co-star Vivian Vance, the grape-stomping scene, or Lucy Ricardo’s attempt to break into television with the filming of the âVitameatavegaminâ commercial.
Also included are pictures of her with her co-stars, and several romantic pictures of Lucy andÂ Desi Arnaz.
However, people tend to forget that Lucille Ball had a long career in the movies before her television series, and some âglamour’ photographs of Lucy are here as well.

Also note the forewoman’s shouting to her coworkers to “speed it up a little!”|
