The Blonde Crusader

No, not the latest Marvel superhero - just Loretta. Loathe her, even as a golden-haired Plantagenet-by-marriage. Loathe her.

  2. Does yellow look good on anyone?

  3. But I believe Loretta was a Marvel Superheo.

    She was the self-proclaimed "Holier Than Thou." The superhero was a thrice-married, bastard-bearing, egomaniac who cloaked herself in a false cloud of Catholic piety to protect herself from reality.

  5. I beg to differ, MJ. I look rather marvelous in certain shades of yellow. (No Asian complexion jokes, please.)

    It appears that Miss Young is also lobbying hard for the Barbara Stanwyck role in Double Indemnity, which, if you think about it, would have been a hoot.

  6. The only thing I've ever liked her in was the rarely shown, "Man's Castle" from Columbia in 1933. It's a glorious pre-coder with Spencer Tracy. In a case of art imitating life, he impregnates her and they are Not married.
