Young Loretta

"Loretta Young's return to the screen following convent school came about rather fortuitously. A casting call was sent out by the producers of "Naughty But Nice" for Polly Ann Young. Answering the telephone, the young Gretchen replied that her sister was unavailable and wondered if she herself might substitute. And so she did. It was merely a bit part, but it led to a movie contract and eventual stardom for Loretta Young."

[Loretta Young ordered that a large mirror be positioned beside the camera. This allowed her to act out each scene before shooting it to ensure that the lighting was sufficiently flattering.]
