Lucille Ball was an iconic American comedienne from the 1950s, known for her sitcoms such as I Love Lucy, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy and Life with Lucy, while Orson Welles was an American actor, writer, director and radio personality remembered for The War of the Worlds broadcast in 1938 and Citizen Kane.

The photo above is a publicity photo from a 1956 episode of I Love Lucy entitled Lucy Meets Orson Welles. Lucy sure looks unimpressed with Welles doesn’t she? (Well, she IS floating in midair, and he’s not , so argument invalid.)

Oh, Lucy.
