While describing Loretta Young and her movie and television work as wholesome he leaves out a important fact about her personal life. She had a child out of wedlock in 1935. The father was married to another woman at the time of conception and birth. It is all good and wonderful that Mr. Hicks decrides the sordid lifes of present day stars but he should not overlook the fact that stars of yesteryeards also had pasts that did not live up to their image. They were better able to conceal the sordid facts but their lives often did not match the life they portrayed to the general public.

I loved Loretta Young! Thank you for bringing to our attention that her TV series is now available on DVD.
To ray vaughn -- yes, Loretta probably made some poor choices in her past, who hasn't, but there is a huge difference between the stars of the '50's and the stars now -- those in the 50's were classy, were more discrete, and didn't flaunt their poor choices like the stars of today do.

Oh, well. I guess she's human.

The lesson is that people make mistakes, but they can lead productive lives and don't have to let the mistakes define who they are.
