Mini-Biography:
Myrna Loy was born on August 2, 1905 in Raidersburg, MT. She was an American Actress, known for Too hot to handle (1938), Ben Hur (1925), The Ambassador's daughter (1956), Myrna Loy's first movie on record is from 1923. Myrna Loy died on December 14, 1993 in New York, NY, US. Her last motion picture on file dates from 1990.
Biographical Notes in German: Beliebte Schauspielerin und Star des amerikanischen Films der Dreissiger Jahre, die sich vom Vamp zur 'idealen Ehefrau' wandelte, Partnerin von William Powell, Melvyn Douglas und Clark Gable wurde sie zu dem Kassenmagneten der MGM Studios.

Myrna Loy wurde am 2. August 1905 als Myrna Williams in Raidersburg, Montana geboren. Als Teenager bereits zug sie nach Los Angeles um und versuchte sich als Tänzerin, trat unter anderem in den Vorprogrammen am Grauman Theatre am Hollywood Boulevard auf. Ihre erste Filmrolle dürfte sie in Fred Niblos "Ben Hur" gehabt haben, bekam kurz danach einen Fünf-Jahres Vertrag bei Warner Bros und bewährte sich in Nebenrollen zahlreicher Filme an der Schwelle zum Tonfilm. Ihre natürliche Begabung schien er den Übergang zum neuen Medium, an dem manche ihrer damals berühmterer Kolleginnen scheiterten, erleichtert zu haben, in der Michael Curtiz Verfilmung "NOAH'S ARK" meistert sie gegenüber Dolores Costello perfekt den Sprechpart. In "THE MASK OF FU MAN CHU" spielt sie die orientalische Tochter von Boris Karloff, aber zum Idol der Dreissiger Jahre wurde sie endgültig als Partnerin von William Powell in "THE THIN MAN", einem Film, dem bis 1947 fünf Sequels folgten.

Mit William Powell drehte Myrna Loy 14 Filme, Clark Gable war ihr Partner in sieben Filmen: Ihr Typ war nun die perfekte Ehefrau, und das Publim goutierte ihre Rolle als Geschäftsfrau in der Komödie "Third Finger, Left Hand" überhaupt nicht. Bei MGM unter Vertrag, sicherte sie dem Studio einen Kassenerfolg nach dem anderen, meist im Genre der geistreichen und doch leichten Komödie. Nach dem Kriegseintritt Amerikas widmete sich Myrna Loy vor allem der Betreuung der Truppen und dem Roten Kreuz, eine Arbeit, die sich nach Kriegsende bei der UNO und der UNESCO weiterführte.

"The best Years of our life" wird ihr wohl bester Nachkriegsfilm, Myrna Loys Auftritte im Film werden seltener, dafürs spielt sie umso mehr im Theater. 1987 erscheit ihre Autobiographie unter dem Titel "Myrna Loy: Being and Becoming", vier Jahre später erhält sie, die bei den Academy Awards immer leer ausgegangen war, den Ehrenoscar für ihr Lebenswerk.
