Something about Loretta Young makes me twitch. And want to slap her. Don't like her young and wild, don't like her old and righteous, and can only just stand her whirling in through doorways. I think its her all-pervading humorlessness, her air of smiling graciously even as she doesn't get the joke.
Well, that and the idea that she believed anybody bought the "adopted daughter" story - with those ears!
