Myrna

Myrna Loy 1934

I first saw Myrna Loy in “The Thin Man” (and if you haven’t seen that movie, you simply MUST–I’d have to say it’s my favorite movie of all time) and I was smitten from the moment she walked on screen.

You can’t take your eyes off of her when she’s on the screen.

Those eyebrows!  Those eyes!

For me, she is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen.

And she’s funny.  Comedy is, in my opionion, the hardest thing to play on screen or on stage (and, believe me, I’ve attempted it–and failed miserably).  You either have it, or you don’t.

Watching just the first 5 minutes of her on screen in “The Thin Man”, and you KNOW she has it.

Just a beautiful woman, and from what I’ve read about her, that extended to her personality as well.

So, go watch a Myrna Loy movie or two–trust me, it’s so totally worth it.

“I was glamorous because of magicians like George J. Folsey, James Wong Howe, Oliver Marsh, Ray June, and all those other great cinematographers. I trusted those men and the other experts who made us beautiful. The rest of it I didn’t give a damn about. I didn’t fuss about my clothes, my lighting, or anything else, but, believe me, some of them did.”
