Myrna Loy: The Perfect Partner; A TCM Tribute by Julianne Moore (Short Documentary Video, with a Splendid Analysis of Loy’s Work in The Best Years of Our Lives
I’ve seen this twice. My favorite part is Moore’s spot-on analysis of the scene in The Best Years of Our Lives, in which Loy’s Milly Stephenson nervously serves breakfast to her husband, Al (Fredric March, in one of his greatest roles), for the first time since he returned from three-and-a-half years of combat in the Pacific Theater.
If you haven’t seen the picture, you might want to skip this, and savor it for yourself, before hearing Moore’s analysis. You can always come back here, and see this.
But if you do check out Moore, you might want to watch her analysis of the BYOL scene more than once. It’s well worth it.
A big thank you to asw88.
