Movie Reviews

Lovely Loretta
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 09/26/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Four classic episodes from Loretta Young's classic anthology series, THE LORETTA YOUNG SHOW (aka "Letter to Loretta" and "The Loretta Young Theatre"). 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 wearing 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!

Includes the following episodes:

"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.

A Real Contrast in Values
David | Carney, MD USA | 04/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All four episodes are excellent examples from a time when television shows conveyed very worthwhile, sound values. It's a shame that, in comparison, many of today's TV shows seem to be quite superficial."
