The Hollywood Museum and co-sponsor The Hollywood Reporter have debuted Loretta Young: Hollywood Legend, the most comprehensive collection of Hollywood memorabilia ever assembled, to mark the 100th anniversary of the life of the durable actress. Young’s longevity spanned over seven decades – beginning as a child ingénue during the Silent Era of motion pictures; attaining star status as a romantic leading lady during Hollywood’s Golden Age; and onto television as the host of her own popular dramatic series, The Loretta Young Show, on NBC. She won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in the 1947 film The Farmer’s Daughter.
