Never an Oscar for Myrna [20 Mar 2007|10:10pm]

Did you know Myrna was never even NOMINATED for an Oscar during her lifetime? What a shame that is! She was such a brilliant comedian and dramatic actress. Such a beauty too.

Did she ever win a lifetime achievement Oscar? I can't remember. I know she got a Kennedy Center Honor for her humanitarion work, but that's it.

Still, what a shame.

Hey everyone!!!! Anyways, I was wondering if you wanted to be added as a friend, I love anyone that loves Myrna Loy. I am so excited!!! I am getting Test Pilot, Belle's on Their Toes,and I found Midnight Lace on ebay. I LOVE that site. Any other movie recommendations? I know everything she's in is amazing, but the search might be easier if you all recommended me somethings!:)

I got the Thin Man movie box set from amazon.com the other day! Oh happy, happy, joy, joy! I had forgotten how much fun it is to get packages in the mail.

In honor of that I feel like sharing some Myrna photo spammage...just 'cause! :)

Just saw this picture and was struck by it. I don't think I've seen a picture where her hair was down or as long. I think she looks gorgeous!

Myrna Loy: So Nice to Come Home to... [25 Jul 2005|01:56pm]

I watched this 1991 documentary from a tape that my friend Debra lent me. Made me adore Miss Myrna (The "Queen of the Movies") even more! I loved all the clips that were shown -- of course there were lots of Thin Man clips and other clips with William Powell and Clark Gable. I enjoyed seeing some of the rarer clips from some of Myrna's earlier silent film work. One of the coolest was this clip of her dancing (her original passion)...a re-discovered bit a film that hadn't been shown since the original release.

I knew that many stars had been active in the war effort but I never realized how much work volunteer work Myrna did during WWII, making only one movie during that time! She worked with the Red Cross and served as assistant to the director of military and naval welfare for them in World War II. She was later appointed a member-at large of the U.S. Commission to UNESCO. She also fought the Hollywood blacklisting of the 1950's and served on Civil Rights Commissions. Pretty impressive!

'Twas a nice overview of her extraordinary film legacy (129 movies!!) and I was very excited to see that it will be on the bonus documentary disc in the Thin Man box set coming out August 2nd. I think she was a remarkable woman and great actress!

Woo hoo a community dedicated to Myrna Loy! I think she was a *fabulous* actress. I only recently discovered her and classic movies for that matter. My friend lent me her entire collection of the Thin Man movies. Loved everyone! She and William Powell are magic together! I'm catching up on Myrna films with Netflix. Seen "Mr. Blandings...," got "The Great Ziegfeld" and "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" in my queue and I have "Libeled Lady" at home to watch. Just the tip of the iceberg, I know.

I just started reading her autobiography "Myrna Loy: Being and Becoming" and it really is excellent. I highly recommend it. Glad to find this community! :)

Myrna and Bill Powell fan [11 Apr 2005|10:37pm]

I am a huge Myrna and William Powell fan. My fave movie is probably I Love You Again, but I am also mad about all the rest. I can't believe that they actually considered replacing Myrna in the last Thin Man movies. Heresy, I say.
