When I Love Lucy debuted October 15, 1951, the show became an instant sensation, defining the situation comedy format, driving thousands of viewers to television for the first time, and turning its unlikely star, Lucille Ball, into a legend. The humble road to that success began under the watchful eyes of studio heads like Samuel Goldwyn and Louis B. Mayer. Ball underwent many metamorphoses (and hair colors) while honing her skill for comedy, eventually making her a reliable – if not bankable – movie star. But it was the small screen and her ability to “make ’em laugh” that turned her into an influential icon who still reverberates in the entertainment industry today.
