Quote of the Day: Lucille Ball

[On the MGM Studio System] "You were taken in charge and trained. They have none of that today any place. I regret the passing of the studio system. I was very appreciative of it because I had no talent. Believe me. What could I do? I couldn't dance. I couldn't sing. I could talk. I could barely walk. I had no flair. I wasn't a beauty, that's for sure."
-- Lucille Ball, actress, studio executive of Desilu Productions


  1. I have to disagree with Lucille Ball. She was a beauty. Just look at her in that photo.

  2. I completely agree with you, Dawn. She was gorgeous. Perhaps that self-effacing quality of hers has helped to endear her to so many people.
