As aired on NBC, on Sunday nights from 1953 to 1961, THE LORETTA YOUNG SHOW constituted a 30-minute dramatic anthology series, perhaps most famous for its widely-referenced introductions, that found Loretta sweeping into a doorway melodramatically, in a long-flowing dress. Also unique were the program's outros, that found Loretta quoting poetry or Bible passages to underscore the message of the drama featured that evening. Most of the dramas were indeed very message-heavy, designed to concurrently teach and entertain the audience and to show the uplift of the human spirit. Though Young at one point insisted that the intros and outros be deleted in syndication, this collection brings back 31 of the original, best-loved episodes in their entirety, with the introductions and closing passages intact. The episodes in this particular collection originally aired in Season Three (1956-57) and Season Four (1957-58).
