    Myrna Loy is one of my favorite actresses of all time. Beautiful, smart and great at every role i have seen her in.

    I haven't had the opportunity to see many of Myrna Loy's films, but I have enjoyed her in WIFE VS. SECRETARY and LIBELED LADY. She is certainly beautiful, and her timing is spot-on.

    want to see perfect timing watch her spar with William Powell in the Thin Man series , perfect paring:D

    think this is in the wrong section, by the way, just my thing everyone of the ladies are grossly under represented on blu ray, Mae West doesn't even have one title released :(:angry:

    Yes, I had posted something previously in this section, so this one ended up here as well. Can it be moved?

    I'd add Joan Bennett, Carole Lombard, Ginger Rogers, Joan Blondell, and my all-time favorite, Barbara Stanwyck. And perhaps Deanna Durbin, whose 1930s films, all made while she was a teenager, saved Universal Pictures from bankruptcy.

    Ginger Roger's pic should definitely be up there.

    I couldn't put them all in the grid I had, but yes, Ginger Rogers was an excellent and long-lasting star.

    I would switch out Judy with Ginger only because Judy ( who I absolutely adore) was just starting to become a star in 1939. Most of her stardom happened in the 1940's where Ginger ( who I also absolutely adore) made her stardom all through the 1930's. Great topic by the way! Myrna Loy was another of my favorites!

    1930s screen "queens?"

    Well, maybe I'm a bit more partial to the gals who constitute 1930s screen "ladies-in-waiting"... like Frances Dee, Jean Rogers, Marian Marsh, Evelyn Venable, Marjorie Weaver, Mae Clarke, Phyllis Brooks, Sally Blane, Nan Grey, Irene Ware, Rochelle Hudson, Louise Campbell, Gloria Stuart, Dorothy Wilson, Leila Hyams, Marion Nixon, Helen Mack, Jean Parker, and probably a dozen more of whose names aren't immediately coming to mind.

    I understand where you are coming from. I quite often find myself having partiality to those ladies that had ample talent, but often fell through the cracks of the ever-powerful "studio system". Constance Bennett, for instance, was a major star in her time, but she's often overlooked now. (Hence my admiration of her.)

    I see now that's where I made the mistake. Garland was a great star, but she didn't become what she's remembered for being until the 1940s. How could I have possibly forgotten Ginger Rogers? I cannot believe myself!
