Typically inane filler extra for the DVD
28 March 2011 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Written like the childish content of a '50s fan magazine, TY & LORETTA is a lame attempt to wring some significance out of the fact that they co-starred in 4 pictures (doc claims it was 50 before Loretta Young rebelled against Darryl Zanuck and left 20th Century-Fox. "Sweethearts of the Screen"- what phony hype.

Bryan Cooper, who cranks out this junk, is the writing culprit, but the interviewees aren't much help. Judy Lewis has some nice heart-on-sleeve comments as Young's real-life daughter, but so-called historian Maria Ciaccia is completely embarrassing. Her analyses are strictly gush and she demonstrates (in this short as well as another Tyrone Power tribute I've seen) an elementary school level vocabulary. She fits well in this age of gossip and mindless celebrity worship.

Obviously if you're a fan the teaming of Young with Power was fun to watch, but it doesn't represent even a blip in film history.
