Babalu! There was something marvelous and naive in the world of “I Love Lucy.” However, not everything in the show was as it seemed. Behind the canned laughter and gags, lied the bitter truth of reality.
Things like success, prejudice, heartache, strife, and triumph were ever so dominant behind the scenes. These are things which can’t be made up for the sake of a script; it’s reality at its finest and completely unedited.
TV’s golden era will never be the same
The days of “Leave it to Beaver” and “The Lone Ranger” are long gone. But there still remains one television show that has maintained its prominence long after TV’s golden age was over, and that’s “I Love Lucy.” The peppy redhead wore her heart on her sleeve and strongly impacted America during her time and many future generations to come.
Her role and influence on television had an effect on a wide number of viewers and set high standards for the entertainment industry that has since hardly come close to comparison. While we all came to know and love her television self, did we know the real Lucille Ball? Lucille wasn’t just gimmicks and cued laughter. But, while she did experience a series of highs and lows, her story has a happy ending, giving America exactly what they wanted and what Lucy wanted to give them.
