A Classy Lady !
15 July 2002 | by florriebbcSee all my reviews

Hello, I always enjoyed Loretta Young in all of her movies and television shows. Such class!. I know more about her since her daughter wrote her biography. Very interesting family. I loved all her fabulous clothes and how she handled herself. Thank you for listening. Florence Forrester-Stockton Reno, Nevada
