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

(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."
