She obtained work at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, where she performed in what were called prologues, elaborate musical sequences that were related to and served as preliminary entertainment before the feature film.
During this period, Loy saw Eleonora Duse in the play Thy Will Be Done, and the simple acting techniques she employed made such an impact on Loy that she tried to emulate them throughout her career.
Here I am, just testing the waters to see who is out there.
I really enjoy meeting people in the real world but am giving online a try, AGAIN!! I'd like to find that beautiful type of relationship where life can be shared on a deeper level. IM INTO YOUNGER WOMEN 25 SO IF YOU LIKE OLDER WOMEN GIVE ME A SHOT.... Witty, humorous, sarcastic, cute, intelligent, fun lesbian whom I can get to know and vice versa who I can be completely and utterly silly with, i enjoy.
Loy's career began to slow in the 1940s, and she appeared in only a few films in the 1950s, including a lead role in the comedy Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), as well as supporting parts in The Ambassador's Daughter (1956) and the drama Lonelyhearts (1958).
She appeared in only eight films between 19, after which she retired from acting. Loy died in December 1993 in New York City, aged 88.
She was discovered by production designer Natacha Rambova, who helped facilitate film auditions for her, and she began obtaining small roles in the late 1920s, mainly portraying vamps.
Her role in The Thin Man helped elevate her reputation as a versatile actress, and she reprised the role of Nora Charles five more times.
Although her mother tried to persuade her husband to move to California permanently, he preferred ranch life and the three eventually returned to Montana.While Loy was dancing in prologues at the Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, portrait photographer Henry Waxman took several pictures of her that were noticed by Rudolph Valentino when the actor went to Waxman's studio for a sitting.Loy tested for the role, which went to Gertrude Olmstead instead, but soon after she was hired as an extra for Pretty Ladies (1925), in which she and fellow newcomer Joan Crawford were among a bevy of chorus girls dangling from an elaborate chandelier.Trained as a dancer, Loy devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films.She was originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, but her career prospects improved greatly following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934).
In fact, I thrive on it unless it has to do with heights...
