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>

Good but superficial
27 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film about Myrna Loy was narrated by Kathleen Turner and was chock full of film clips of the actress--something possible since it was done by Turner Entertainment--the folks who own the rights to her MGM and Warner Brothers films.

If you are looking for a biography of Myrna Loy, then perhaps this is not the film for you. It doesn't have much to say about her personal life other than four unhappy marriages as well as a few snippets about her childhood. Instead, the film focuses solely on her film career--especially her films with William Powell and, of these, especially the Thin Man films. This isn't a terrible thing but is a bit incomplete.
