In 1972, Loretta Young
sued NBC for violating her contract in allowing reruns of 'Letter to Loretta (1953)' (better known as Loretta Young
) to be shown, wherein audiences might have ridiculed her gowns and hairstyles, which were by then 10 or even 20 years out of date. The court awarded her more than a half-million dollars. See more
Episodes that did not feature Young were rebroadcast as "NBC Playhouse" (1960) with new introductions by Jeanne Bal. See more
