I remember My Mama and I watching The Loretta Young Show. My Mother would never miss her ENTRANCE, always wearing breath taking gowns. She had a fantastic entrance. The shows were great and clean. From 1953-61 the show won Three Emmy Awards.
Loretta was born in Utah, Jan.6 1913 Passed away Aug 12,2000 My Mama was born in 1913 and also schooled in a convent like Loretta. She was a child star at age 3 along with 2 sisters Polly and Elizabeth. Her career started 1917-1953 in Hollywood.
Young had an affair with a then-married Clark Gable while on location for The Call of the Wild. During their affair, Young became pregnant. Due to the moral codes placed on the film industry, Young covered up her pregnancy in order to avoid damaging her career (as well as Gable's). When she began to show she went on a "vacation" to England . Young's baby Judy was born on November 6, 1935, in a house her mother owned in . A few weeks later, Young went back to movie-making. Judith was taken to St. Elizabeth's an orphanage outside Los Angeles. The Plan was to go a few months later and the grandmother would adopt the infant. The child was raised under the last husband's name "Lewis"
