Lucy and her Double

Lucille Ball had a rule: she never used any doubles to do her dangerous stunt. Over the course of her career, she had injured herself countless of times. Of course, being busy with rehearsing and filming I Love Lucy, Lucille had no time to go for shootings outside Desilu Studios.

Going on location was impossible because of the need to produce one Lucy episode a week. A double was engaged when Desilu crew needed footage of Lucy Ricardo taking the train, riding a boat or boarding a helicopter.
In this picture, you can see sweet Lucille dolling her double up by painting her nails. Isn't Lucy wonderful?

She's wonderful to people who give their best in all performances and are humble.
