And the "Photo Queen" does it again! :-D

I have heard of such a biography of Myrna: and think that she is very close to reaching that very title of "only good girl". And you're right about how fun it is to be a fan of a lesser known actress nowadays. It's always the case for most classic actors/actresses that were once very well known in their day, but were then known less as time passed. But what we ought to do is keep the memory and admiration of such an actress like Myrna Loy alive!

has anyone read Emily Leider's new bio on Myrna called The Only Good Girl in Hollywood? i read an interview with the author and she said she had originally set out to reveal things and find things not known about Myrna. to me the book sounds alright but i am a bit skeptical. i like that there is a little mystery surrounding Myrna Loy, just knowing what she wrote in her own autobiography is all i am happy to know about her. at the same time it is nice that an actress like Myrna is getting some attention still she was such an incredible actress it makes me a little upset that she is not as well known today. then again that is what makes being a fan of hers so much fun bc her fans are passionate about her.

ok, Photo Queen! i think we ought to start developing nicknames for each other!

my goodness Monica! I might as well call you "Photo Girl"!! But those are all great pictures of Myrna. :-)

I didn't know that! amazing what one learns from a fellow classic film fan! Sad what happened to Clift. Aged too rapidly. By the time he did the magnificent JUDGE AT NUREMBERG In 1961 (in a fine performance), he had aged to the point of Unrecognition! But our beloved Myrna maintained her beauty to the end.

Let's face it: WE ALL wish there were still such people or actors like these around. They sure don't make them like they used to. And Patti, about not being a fan of THE THIN MAN, it doesn't matter. At least not to me. I was never a "big fan" of the series but i enjoy it nonetheless. To tell you the truth, i've only seen the first one. I have yet to see AFTER THE THIN MAN. she and William Powell have great chemistry, and are too of the best classic screen couples for me. I bet Dashiell Hammett, author of the original novel (which i found too dull, but i did enjoy THE MALTESE FALCON) must've been proud to see his characters brought to the screen with such camaraderie and wit and sophisticated charm by two great actors. :-)

She was a lovely creature and one smart cookie. Myrna Loy was wonderful with Tyrone Power in The Rains Came. Myrna Loy was wonderful, as an actress alongside Clark Gable, William Powell. She was a great friend to many especially, William Powell. He survived the loss of Jean Harlow because of Myrna Loy. She had a wonderful screen presence. I wish we had such actress today!!

I simply love her. I can't say i've loved an actress so much the way i do Myrna Loy. I've just finished seeing THE RAINS CAME, in which she stars alongside Tyrone Power (of which we have a nice group on). She gives one of her best performances in that one. Such beauty and personality! :-)

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
