Oh my Monty, first Carole Lombard and now Myrna--you have featured two of my favorites in less than a week, I love it!
Myrna was a jewel and a consummate actress, I loved her performances in The Thin Man most.
Hope your Monday is a lovely one, cheers!

Myrna was a class act. She was good in everything she appeared in.

I found your site because it was referenced on Gingerology. I love the classic films and actors and actresses from that era. Wm Powell and Myrna Loy are my favorite duo, and your picture of them from Libeled Lady is awesome as is the feature of Myrna herself. There is much to view here, and I'll be enjoying myself. Very nice work!
