    Overview

    Synopsis


    The eighth and final season of the popular dramatic anthology The Loretta Young Show opens with "The Long Night," an entertaining if undistinguished story of a housewife -- played, of course, by Loretta Young -- who begins to have second thoughts about her marriage. Far more intriguing are the series' social issue dramas, including "Switchblade," a highly regarded playlet about juvenile delinquency and small-town political pressure; "The Seducer," which tastefully but poignantly dwells upon the topic of suicide; and "The Subtle Danger," a cautionary tale about the perils of pain-killing drugs. The series final episode, again starring Loretta Young (who at age 49 still looks as though she has just graduated from high school!), is "Not in Our Stars," a seriocomedy about a woman addicted to horoscopes, written by onetime child actor Darryl Hickman and directed by Disney stalwart Norman Foster (who was also the husband of Loretta Young's sister Sally Blane). ~ Hal Erickson
