Loretta Young's legacy: Films, sainthood, victimized by Clark Gable

But I respect your opinion too, TB. It just seems odd that Loretta would disengage from her own daughter, for basically asserting her parentage, and then Loretta would be so forthcoming to her daughter-in-law instead. 

All families have their own unique dynamics. Perhaps Loretta favored the sons, and by extension, their wives. Given the type of relationship Loretta had with Judy for many years, it would make sense that she might feel closer to Linda. 


But the key thing to keep in mind here is how her legacy is much more than the scandal surrounding her daughter's parentage. Loretta made some wonderful films, gave decent performances in those films, and she was someone fans looked up to and still look up to even now.
