Abstract:

Loretta Young was a luminous beauty and movie star. She went from 1920s late silents, to early 1930 s Warner Brothers Depression heroine, to late 1930s Twentieth Century Fox's leading glamour-star. Her peak movie stardom came in the late 1940s. Then in the 1950s, she waltzed through a door wearing a glamorous gown to introduce that week's episode of "The Loretta Young Show". Today, her name is connected with a "secret baby" fathered by Clark Gable. And, wasn't there something about Spencer Tracy and Tyrone Power? This book investigates all the above but so much more. This is the personal story of a woman, who happened to be a movie star, the major focus being on her relationships with the most important people in her life.
