Hello, friends. Last night I stumbled into Turner Movie Channel (TMC) ‘s presentation of Platinum Blonde, a movie made in 1931 (did they have sound then? ) featuring actress Loretta Young, whose biography (FOREVER YOUNG) I wrote in 2000. It was wonderful to see her in an old movie, and to be reminded that this woman made over 100 films while (mostly) sticking to her moral principles, supporting her family, ministering to AIDS patients and loving her way through life. (The mysteries about her daughter and her relationship with Spencer Tracy have finally been cleared up in the book’s revision.)
Because TMC is celebrating Loretta Young as Star of the Month, there are many more movies scheduled, so please watch your TV guides if you are interested in “meeting” her one last time. Or you can download the ebook. We will resume our angel stories next week.
