Storyline

This tribute to Myrna Loy is organized chronologically with a few photographs, many film clips, a handful of personal appearances, and a detailed commentary delivered on camera by Kathleen Turner. Turner walks us through Loy's career as a dancer and an actress miscast as an exotic. She comes into her own as a grown-up women: shrewd, funny, decorous, and sexy - in "Manhattan Melodrama" and "The Thin Man." Her volunteer work during World War II, later stage work, and progressive politics come in for admiration as well. It's her style - seen best in her roles as a wife of charm and independence - that's captured and celebrated here. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lovely remembrance of a lovely lady
28 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hosted by Kathleen Turner, "Myrna Loy: So Nice to Come Home To" is a good, if not terribly informative, documentary about Loy, the qualities she brought to film, and her evolution from exotic, mysterious female roles to light comedy. There is a heavy amount of focus on her film partnership with William Powell and the 14 movies they made together, including, of course, "The Thin Man" series.

There is some biographical information provided and photos of the very young Loy, but the documentary clearly is concerned with her work as an actress. There are no interviews with friends, coworkers, or family, and nothing from the lady herself.

Lots of film clips are scattered throughout, with emphasis on the "Nice to Come Home To" - showing various scenes of this, including Frederic March's return from the war in "The Best Years of Our Lives," and coverage of the wonderful work Myrna Loy did for The Red Cross during World War II. She was as lovely inside as she was out, it seems.

Very enjoyable.
