Diana Lynn Facts
Her father, Louis William Loehr, was a prosperous oil company exec and her mother, the former Eartha Thes, an accomplished pianist and teacher who guided Diana's early musical career. By age 12, the young prodigy was playing with the Los Angeles Junior Symphony Orchestra.

Proved to be a highly-praised Broadway performer, and critical appreciation was strong. She followed Barbara BelGeddes in the title role in 'Mary Mary' to acclaim, and starred in both new plays and comedies as well as revivals.

Starred with the late Gail Russell in the highly popular movie Our Hearts Were Young and Gay (1944), in which she played writer Emily Kimbrough and Russell played close friend and author Cornelia Otis Skinner. Ironically, both Kimbrough and Skinner would outlive their 20-odd-years younger screen portrayers.
