I so love Myrna.

Behold the (sexual)power of youth.

Roddy's photo looks kinda like a grab. I think this because of the slightly unflattering angle.

I'm torn between Myrna and Carole Lombard for my favourite talkie actress...but that first photo might persuade me...

Myrna Loy: so many levels of awesome, the mind fairly boggles. And then some.

Welcome to the club. Too bad they never made a film together -- their styles would have complemented each other. Think of "Outrageous Fortune" made half a century earlier, with Carole in the Bette Midler part and Myrna in the Shelley Long role...

James Wolcott has a nice post discussing whether Ms. Loy should be nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 2009. There's a clip of her in Public Enemies that is apparently sublime. Here's the link: www.vanityfair.com/online/wolcott/2009/12/i-agree-with-the-little.html
