NOTES

While there are claims that Young was the first Oscar-winning actress to also win an Emmy, that is untrue. Helen Hayes holds that distinction.

About working in "Old Hollywood", Loretta Young told The New York Times (March 30, 1995): "We were all under contract to studios, which took good care of of you; even told you who you could and couldn't go out with. Now, at the time we thought that was a terrible thing, but actually it was not."

Young collaborated with Edward J Funk on an as yet unpublished biography that took some five years to complete.

"I've always been very susceptible to men, and some of them [her co-stars] were gorgeous. I was reared with women and understand everything about them. And I love them in spite of themselves. Men, I don't know anything about really." --Young quoted in The New York Times, March 30, 1995.
