4 Responses to Loring, Joan


Do you like torture? Listen then to the painful overacting of the whining and weepy Joan Lorring as she barrels toward her trademark nervous breakdown. The Lorring OTR canon is just too much to bear -- endless volleys of hysterical histrionics a la Moorehead's "Sorry, Wrong Number." Lorring's crackly voice, ever poised for a good cry, seems stuck in that groove. Sorry, but I find Joan Lorring's voice and style akin to a lifetime of fingernails screeching across a slate blackboard.

Joan is beautiful and her radio work is perfect.

If she is same person I met in early 70s with her "son"? She was quite charming involved with Special Olympics and very articulate Anyone else familiar with that actress?

It is interesting that one person mentioned that he hates Joan Loring's voice. I guess that is what makes a horse race, because I love her voice.
