Storyline

Using photographs and an off-screen narrator, this breezy biography takes us quickly through Myrna Loy's film career and ends with a salute to her charity work for the United Nations and on behalf of children. She grows up on a Montana ranch and goes to private high school and art school in Los Angeles. Rudolph Valentino and his wife become her patrons (she's a sculptor) then help get her first movie roles. She's soon cast as a vamp, changes studios a couple of times, stars with Hollywood's most famous leading men, and plays a wife in her most enduring roles, as Nora Charles and as Lillian Gilbreth.

Almost Unwatchable
27 July 2010 | by reader4See all my reviews

Although the information contained in this little biographical feature is quite interesting, and the photographs are great, some stuff I've never seen before, I found this short to be almost impossible to watch.

For some unfathomable reason, director Joseph R. Juliano seems to think that the way to keep the interest of the audience in a 1962 theater is to smear a loud, raucous sound track over the narration, almost completely drowning it out.

This is during the *entire* movie, mind you. Not just the opening credits, or some bridge music between sentences. The music does not stop during the entire four minutes of run time. I understood maybe a third of what was said about Myrna.
