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>

Hollywood Remembers: Myrna Loy - So Nice To Come Home To (1991)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Richard Schickel directs and Kathleen Turner narrates this documentary taking a look at the career of Myrna Loy. If you're looking for any great detail into the life of Loy then you're going to be disappointed as we really learn nothing. We don't learn about her childhood, her break into films or any personal stuff that she did with co-stars or other. Most people will see this as a major plus because all we get are clips from her movies. We get footage from films like DON JUAN, THE SHOW OF SHOWS, LOVE ME TONIGHT, THE MASK OF FU MANCHU, PENTHOUSE, MANHATTAN MELODRAMA, WIFE VS SECRETARY, THE THIN MAN series, TEST PILOT, THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES and countless others. Again, if you're wanting a look into the life of Loy then you're going to be disappointed as this thing really doesn't slip into that with the exception of saying she had four failed marriages. Everything else is basically clips from her movies, which in 1991, when this documentary was released, would have been priceless. I'm sure in 1991 these clips were very much needed as many of these films weren't as widely available as they are today. In today's times with DVD and Turner Classic Movies, just seeing film clips over and over can get a bit tiresome because it would be better to just go and watch the movies themselves. If you're unfamiliar with Loy then this here will give you a good idea of what titles to get but that's about it.
