Good Girl Myrna Loy

loy-hat[1]

Myrna Loy earned the title as the woman most men wanted to marry in 1946.

Her stints in the Thin Man movies, and very successful comedies costarring William Powell, totally wiped out the fact that she used to play the “exotic woman.”
In fact, after The Best Years of Our Lives, Men Must Marry Myrna Clubs were formed, and in spite of the fact that she was married and divorced four times, she still makes the good girl list because she was the first actress to work for the UN, avidly spoke against the Nazi regime during the war, and apologized for her early Forbidden Hollywood sins in the film, Ham and Eggs at the Front.
But more than that, she had her head on straight, and stated that “Life is not having and getting, but being and becoming”. So true.
