Cast members in the 1939 film The Story of Alexander Graham Bell
(1939) included not only Loretta Young but, portraying her character's sisters, her real-life, actress sisters as well: Polly Ann Young
and Sally Blane
. Further, portraying the fourth on-screen sister was a fourth real-life half sister, Georgiana Young
, although the latter was not a professional actress. (Years later, Georgiana, whom Loretta dubbed "Georgie," would appear occasionally on Loretta's TV show "The Loretta Young Show"
(1953) (better known as "The Loretta Young Show").).
In 1976 there was talk of a comeback role for Loretta, as Mother Cabrini in a biography of the first American to attain sainthood to be directed by Martin Scorsese
. The project unfortunately never materialised.
