TV Tuesday: Loretta Young Makes an Entrance
Though I've never seen The Loretta Young Show (also known as Letter to Loretta), I have often heard of her legendary dramatic entrances at the start of each episode. She would open the door to a cozy room, and briskly step in, with a flip of her skirt, to give her introduction. That entrance became so closely associated with Young that when an illness kept her away from the program for several months, though other stars filled in for her, that door remained shut until she was there to open it again. Here's a silent montage of a few of those entrances. She had quite the selection of dresses!
