3. She Was a Female Producer In the 1950s

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Betty White broke new ground in Hollywood when she developed Life With Elizabeth alongside future TV icon George Tibbles (the guy who contributed to Leave It To Beaver, The Munsters, The Addams Family, Who’s The Boss, and a slew of others). Not only was it rare for a female to act as a producer during those days, White’s young age (she wasn’t even 30 at the time) made her accomplishment especially memorable. Even more, Life With Elizabeth eventually earned White her first Emmy Nomination in 1951.
