About Loretta Young: Hollywood's Heavenly Beauty
From silent films to the Golden Age of Hollywood to TV, Loretta Young’s strong, dignified heroines spanned the history of Twentieth Century entertainment. But behind the scenes, the devoutly religious actress had a series complicated romantic entanglements with co-stars. Her relationship with married superstar Clark Gable produced a daughter, raised by Young with a convoluted cover story.
Today, Young is best remembered for heartwarming classic films like The Farmer’s Daughter and The Bishop’s Wife with Cary Grant. But after winning an Academy Award, she made the unheard-of decision to take her talents to the new medium of television. What happened next made history.
This retrospective includes interviews with friends and family, clips from her films, and rare home movies. Also featured are excerpts from her trailblazing 1953-1961 TV series.
