‘Beginning in movies as an extra in silent films, Myrna Loy (1905-1993) progressed from Oriental vamp to “perfect wife” and, along the way, proved herself a performer of unusual wit, grace and intelligence. Like Clark Gable, she commanded both the male and female audience; men saw her as the ideal mate and women wanted to be like her. With her unflappable poise and “dry-martini voice,” Loy achieved icon status with her portrayal of Nora Charles in the Thin Man movies. In 1936 she was the No. 1 female box-office attraction in films. That same year, fans voted her “Queen of the Movies” to Clark Gable’s “King.”’- TCM

the wonderful Myrna Loy. her first movie 1925, an oscar in recognition of her achievements... 1991

“[Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer] put me right to work in Manhattan Melodrama, which precipated the demise of John Dillinger, Public Enemy No. 1. FBI agents shot him down outside the Biograph Theatre, in Chicago, after he’d seen the film. Supposedly a Myrna Loy fan, he broke cover to see me. Personally, I suspect the theme of the picture rather than my fatal charms attracted him, but I’ve always felt a little guilty about it, anyway. They filled him full of holes, poor soul.” -Myrna Loy,
