Tribute to Myrna Loy

Myrna


Created 2008
Renderer: POV-Ray 3.7 beta
Tools: Blender, Poser, XFrog.

Music: 'Just Like A William Powell (lookin' for that Myrna Loy)'
composed and performed by Six River Moonstone / Lyrics by Thomas Pynchon (from 'Vineland')


Before Myrna did become famous with the "Thin Man" movies she appeared quite often as the "sinister Asian lady" in b-pictures - probably most well known from this period: "The Mask of Fu Manchu" from 1932.

A few years ago, while reading Thomas Pynchon's Vineland - where one of the main characters starts to sing a song about '...looking for that Myrna Loy' - I coincidentally found at a flee market an old signed picture card of her. So I got interested in her work and career and have tried to create a Hollywood glamor shot in the style of the early 30ies.
