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>

Interesting glimpses of the early Loy in Oriental roles...
23 July 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

For those who only know MYRNA LOY as the woman who played Nora Charles in "The Thin Man" films or Fredric March's wife in THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES ('46), this is a charming collection of her earlier film roles, sprinkled with clips from them and her more famous films later on.

All of it is hosted by Kathleen Turner in sprightly fashion with a good deal of warmth and affection for the star. Loy's early years as the Oriental vixen are amusing to watch, as well as the transfer to sophisticated comedy roles that made her famous at the MGM studio.

Among the best clips are those from "The Thin Man" series, with various close-ups that show Myrna Loy at her best.

What struck me, is how she seemed to age so suddenly after WWII, looking matronly and a bit wan when seen in documentary footage devoted to her contributions to the war effort.

But with this documentary, we'll always have the real Myrna on display.
