Lucille Ball always had a fascinating look, she didn’t look like the rest of the Hollywood starlettes of the era and that’s what made her stand out. Before she changed the comedy landscape with I Love Lucy, Ball was busy appearing in comedies by the Marx Brothers and for pictures by RKO. While many people would have found disheartening she persisted and became one of the most famous people on the planet. Ball later explained that she got to the top of mountain with persistence and hard work:

Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it, and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work — and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
