Thoroughly Modern Myrna
Myrna Loy biographer Emily W. Leider presents

Thoroughly Modern Myrna

Emily W. Leider, author of Myrna Loy: The Only Good Girl in Hollywood (University of California Press) gives an illustrated talk on the inimitable actress Myrna Loy. Leider will look at Loy's evolving appearance and physical surroundings, on screen and off, paying most attention to the Myrna Loy of the 1920s, when she began performing as a prologue dancer at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, and the 1930s, when her slim, graceful figure complemented the taste for all things streamlined. Illustrated with slides and movie clips, her talk will touch on the work of MGM set designer Cedric Gibbons and costume designers Dolly Tree and Adrian. The flapper craze, Orientalism, and changing ideals of female beauty will also be touched upon. Ms. Leider's book will be for sale and she will sign after the presentation.
