Hollywood Museum Exhibit Features Loretta Young

The exhibit will coincide with a month of Young movies on TCM.

Film and television actress Loretta Young will be the focus of the Hollywood Museum's newest exhibit, Loretta Young: Hollywood Legend—100 Years of Glamour and Grace, set to open Wednesday.

Young was the first person to win both Academy and Emmy awards; She won the 1948 best actress award for her role in The Farmer's Daughter, and her Loretta Young Show, a dramatic anthology series, won three Emmys. Starting as a child actor in silent films, Young's career spanned seven decades.

The exhibit marks the 100th anniversary of Young's life.

According to the museum's website, the exhibition will include Young's awards; costumes; personal fashion items; décor from her homes; a photo collection including both career and candid at-home shots; information about the men in her life, movie posters and memorabilia; tributes for her charity work; designs by her husband, fashion designer Jean Louis and a section on movie star make-up—Young was the first Max Factor girl.

The museum itself, notes its website, is housed in the historic Max Factor Building, "where Max Factor, Hollywood’s Makeup King , created the looks of Hollywood’s Golden Era stars."

As well, the Turner Classic Movies network is featuring Young as its star of the month for January. See the network's movie lineup on the TCM website.

The Hollywood Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. It's located at 1660 N. Highland Ave. at Hollywood Boulevard. Visit the Hollywood Museum's website for more information.
