I first discovered Loretta Young in Laugh, Clown, Laugh, a 1928 silent film about an abandoned young girl taken in by two aging circus clowns. They raise her in the circus as their own child, but once she reaches maturity, one clown, Tito, realizes his true feelings for her. Of course, it’s pretty gross- he raised her as his own daughter, but  it’s somehow still beautiful, and you can’t help but pity the old clown (plus they don’t actually get together.) I mean, seriously though, she’s beautiful, this is the epitome of old Hollywood glamour here.
