Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Alfred Hitchcock used his television crew, shot in black and white on a tight schedule and produced one of the most terrifying films in Hollywood history. Anthony Perkins defined the loony Norman Bates whose devotion to his dead mother has murderous intent. Janet Leigh and a photo double endured hundreds of camera setups to produce the shower scene that is still taught in editing master classes. The murderous set pieces are so well done that audiences still jump with fright even when they know what is coming. Robert Bloch penned the original novel and Bernard Herrmann’s score adds punch at just the right moments.
Event running time is approximately 2 hours.
