  1. That's GEORGE O' HANLON, the voice of George Jetson, as her agent. He was also known as "Joe McDoaks".

  2. I’ve watched her in movies and on tv since I was a young boy. I am now 70 and still find her amazing.

  3. Loretta Young was born in Los Angeles, and was a Star in movies from very early on in her life, then successful in radio and television. How she got started is very interesting, but too long for these comments.
