Myrna Loy the “Queen of Hollywood “

Myrna Loy (August 2, 1905 – December 14, 1993) was an American actress. Trained as a dancer, she devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films. Originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, her career prospects improved following her portrayal of Nora Charles in “The Thin Man” (1934). Her successful pairing with William Powell resulted in 14 films together, including five subsequent Thin Man films. In 1937, Myrna Loy was crowned the Queen of Hollywood by a nationwide poll.
