Past Exhibit: “I Love Lucy”
I Love Lucy!
“I LOVE LUCY” was recently voted the “Best TV Show of All Time” by ABC News, People Magazine and Barbara Walters. America’s Favorite Comediene, Lucille Ball and the Genius of Desi Arnaz continue to charm the hearts of fans worldwide and The Hollywood Museum has the largest Lucy collection west of the Mississippi!
“The Hollywood Museum in the Historic Max Factor Building is the perfect venue for this exhibit because it’s where Max Factor gave Lucille Ball her famous red hair,” says Museum President Donelle Dadigan. “The ‘RED HEADS ONLY’ Room has been carefully preserved in her memory today.”

I Love Lucy is the cornerstone of modern-day sitcoms and set the gold standard of family entertainment. Remember the most beloved episodes of the show including Lucy’s hilarious attempt to pass herself off as a prima ballerina, her laugh-out-loud audition for Vitameatavegimen, her side-splitting time grape-stomping at an Italian vineyard, her famed shenanigans in a chocolate factory, and much more. The museum’s historic connection to Lucy is the reason the U.S. Postal Service chose to unveil its official Lucille Ball commemorative stamp here in 2001.
