I'm always up for trying new things and rarely afraid to take risks in life. A few months later, Loy's "Inspiration" figure was temporarily removed from the sculpture group and transported aboard the battleship Nevada for a Memorial Day pageant in which "Miss Myrna Williams" participated.Fountain of Education can be seen in the opening scenes of the 1978 film Grease.Trained as a dancer, Loy devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films.She was originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, but her career prospects improved greatly following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934).
