Synopsis

Starting with the very first episode of the original show, Letter from Loretta, this 17 DVD box set includes the very best of The Loretta Young Show, 8 discs of which have never been released on DVD and are exclusive to this set! To add to your enjoyment, bonus features include a conversation with Loretta’s children, rare family home movies and photographs, movie trailers, interviews with veterans of The Loretta Young Show and a short biography that highlights Loretta’s career as actress, mother and role model to millions of American women.

Few celebrities have enjoyed the professional longevity of Hollywood actress Loretta Young, whose remarkable career stretched over seven decades - beginning as a child extra during the Silent Era of motion pictures and attaining star status as a romantic leading lady during Hollywood’s Golden Age. Miss Young appeared in over 100 films during her movie career, most notably The Farmer's Daughter, for which she won an Academy Award®. But in 1953, she announced her retirement from film and signed a contract with Proctor & Gamble and the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) to produce and star in her own television series.

Her first show, Letter to Loretta, went on the air that September and was an immediate hit. Later re-titled The Loretta Young Show, her weekly anthology series was the first to feature a female star as host and actress, and made Miss Young one of the best-known and beloved personalities on television.

With a mix of both melodramas and light romantic comedies, the series was designed and intended for a female audience. Young chose stories for their messages, and while many stories affirmed postwar, middle-class ideas about the home, families, and gender roles, the show also explicitly addressed social issues of the day. It stands out as a rare, primetime network drama series where a woman tells her stories.

Why We Love It

“This 17-DVD box set is a must have for fans of Golden Age Television and classic Hollywood aficionados alike…this collection includes the very best of The Loretta Young Show, highlighting Young's career as actress, mother and role model to millions of American women.” – Broadway World
