Editorial Reviews

SPECIAL FOIL PACKAGING! One of the brightest stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the lovely Loretta Young appeared in over 100 films during her movie career. Some of her most memorable roles from the 30s and 40s were A Man's Castle, Ramona and The Farmer's Daughter, for which she won an Academy Award in 1947. TMG is proud to bring you the best of Loretta's second season on three DVDs, authorized by the Loretta Young Estate. In addition to thirty episodes of the show, we have included exclusive extras to add to your enjoyment: a conversation with Loretta's children, including filmmaker Chris Lewis and interviews with actresses Coral Hammond and Beverly Washburn, veterans of The Loretta Young Show.

Customer Reviews

Great old tv shows with good morality and lessons to live by.
C. M. Walsh
The stories are great and Loretta Young has got to be one of the most talented and beautiful actresses ever!
Jeff Boomer
The DVDs are probably a trifle bit better than VHS quality, but not by much.

This is a 3-Disc DVD boxed set containing 30 debut-season episodes of a half-hour anthology TV series from the very early "Golden Age" of television --- "The Loretta Young Show".

Loretta Young was a very popular movie star prior to taking a big risk by deciding to star in her own series on the "small" screen in 1953 (when she was 40). But her new NBC-TV drama/anthology series was very well-received by viewers and stayed on the air for 8 seasons. The program earned Loretta multiple Emmy Awards during its lifetime on the airwaves.

Miss Young served as host for all of these shows, and starred in about half of the episodes herself. She appeared in the leading role in a total of 162 episodes of her series, which premiered on September 20, 1953.

The series was originally called "Letter To Loretta", but was re-named "The Loretta Young Show" midway through the first season, in February 1954.

------------------------

A little about Loretta ...... Loretta Young was born "Gretchen Michaela Young" in Salt Lake City, Utah, on January 6, 1913. She appeared in a little more than 100 feature motion pictures in her career, beginning as a 4-year-old in "The Primrose Ring" (in 1917).

She starred opposite some of Hollywood's biggest names of the 1930s and 1940s, such as Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Ronald Colman, Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, Don Ameche, Charles Boyer, Robert Taylor, Joseph Cotten, and Robert Young.

Loretta won an Academy Award for her role in 1947's "The Farmer's Daughter". She passed away (of ovarian cancer), at age 87, on August 12, 2000.

My mom always loved this show, and always spoke highly of it, so when I saw it on the familynet schedule a couple of years ago, I tuned in to check it out. And after seeing one episode, I was hooked . . . what a fantastic series, and I'm a guy! There are many great stories in the Loretta Young Show. In this season, for instance, there is an episode where a couple's car is rear-ended. The drivers exchange information and the guy in the wrong goes crazy and starts terrorizing the couple. The shows always have a moral or message to them, and are uplifting. The downside to this dvd set is that it is missing 4 of the episodes of season two, and the dvd's are from 50 year old prints, so the sharpness and sound sometimes aren't the best, but don't let that stop you from buying it. The stories are great and Loretta Young has got to be one of the most talented and beautiful actresses ever!

Despite the relatively poor quality of the shows due to their age and lack of remastery this DVD collection is still worth looking in to. My step-mother was a big fan and actually watched the show during it's initial run but i had never heard of the show. We watched it together and she enjoyed it for because of its nostalgic qualities and the fact that it is essentially timeless. I, being a fan of things from the 50's and earlier enjoyed it too despite the show's uber-feelgoodness and slight chessiness. The shows average 23 minutes with a one minute ending where LY states the moral of the story and reads a quotation that is actually suprisingly profound and enjoyable. In short, whether you watched the show when it was first aired or have never seen or heard of the show, there's something for everybody who can appreciate classic movies/tv shows. The one star deduction is due to the grainy picture quality and the occassional times when the audio is absent and subtitles are provided.

I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the 30 episodes. It was simply marvelous to see Loretta in these excellent plays. Since I was born in 1946, I was only allowed to stay up to see the last two seasons. If my wish could be answered, I would want to see all the the seasons of her show available on DVD. She was voted favorite actress by American teenagers in 1959. I was just 13!! Since Miss Young's fan base is an aging group of baby boomers and even older folks we can only hope that ALL of her TV shows can be made available soon. Many of her fans have already passed on and perhaps are enjoying her company in heaven. Please act soon! I'm seen all kind of garbage put on DVD. We need more of the quality that TV history has to offer. In conclusion, Season 1 was excellently done and the extras were just marvelous. Please give the public MORE AND SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!

My late mother was a big fan of Loretta Young. I had never seen the series until last year on Sky Angel Satellite. I wanted to see what it was that intrigued my mom. In the process, my wife became a big fan of The Loretta Young Show and asked for this set for her birthday. We both enjoyed watching the complete first season and look forward to more collections. What I am sure my mother liked about this show (& Loretta Young, in general) was her faith and moral values. It's too bad television today has gone so far over to the dark side that one could never imagine seeing a program like this produced today! The extras are nice, but we found the biography a little disappointing. It ends with her starting the TV series! Nice price and definitely worth every dollar.
