A good coda
19 October 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Movie legend Loretta Young made her final acting appearance in made for TV film Lady In A Corner. She plays the editor of a fashion magazine that is the object of a hostile takeover by British publishing magnate Christopher Neame. Neame is a Rupert Murdoch type, a man whose other publications tend toward the sleaze. What's worse for Young is that old friend and former lover Brian Keith seems to be aiding and abetting Neame and his plans.

Keith has brought on board the magazine Lindsay Frost a hip and shrewd fashion editor whom he sees as having a future. But all Young sees is a rival planted in her domain.

The film centers mostly around the conflict between Young and Frost and the woman who must feel likes she's being boxed in a corner proves to be quite the counter puncher. She exercises a long forgotten option that she should have first bid on takeover and then sets about the arduous task of recruiting the financing.

Young and Keith have a nice chemistry between them showing passion hasn't totally died. Lady In A Corner is nothing like some of Young's legendary big screen efforts, but it's a good coda to her career.
