Movie Reviews

Fine budget release of Miss Young's anthology series
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 07/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"4 classic episodes from Loretta Young's classic anthology series. Young takes center-stage in stories that were always well-written and featured great supporting performances from a versatile cast. Perhaps more famous than the show itself was Young's grand entrance at the start of each episode, where she would magically twirl into the camera sporting a gorgeous designer gown (many people would tune in just to see what fabulous creation Loretta would appear in). Classic TV at it's height!

This DVD from Alpha contains 4 classic stories -

"Big Jim" - Loretta plays a woman with a shady past who comes back into the life of her now-teenaged son (played by Bobby Driscoll).

"600 Seconds" - Loretta plays a socialite who receives a mysterious telephone call about her husband. Her mind imagines all kinds of drastic scenarios centering on her husband's fidelity.

"Switch Blade" - Loretta plays kindly Sister Ann, whose hospital salary of 25 cents becomes the key to helping a friend in need.

"Cayuse" - Loretta plays a young girl who begs a handsome stranger to find her beloved pony Ginger.

"Switch Blade" is the only episode that features Young's entrance. The other three episodes are taken from syndication prints (under the LORETTA YOUNG THEATRE title) which omit Young's entrance. The Alpha logo appears in the corner of the screen for a few seconds at the beginning and end of the episodes for copyright/piracy reasons."
Loretta Young - Classic Traditional American Values

"A nice collection of episodes from The Loretta Young Show. If you don't want the season one boxed set, but just a snipet of the show, this is a good start. Ms. Young is a class act and a classic actress. Enjoy a time when TV was good, clean fun and creative, as well. TV that was entertaining without using filthy language, sex and extreme violence to appeal to viewers."

"a shame that Loretta Young did not want to rerelease her show in her lifetime...she said it was too dated...she was wrong and would have established a whole new fan base in her lifetime...the shows are fabulous"
The beautiful Loretta

"I remember watching her shows and each one was different and was so good. And of course her flowing entrance at the begining in her beautiful gowns. I love everything about the show so I had to start my collection. It was everything I remember it to be!"
