“Eisie must have shot thousands of pictures of me,” Loren said fondly recalling her camera-toting “shadow.”  Asked by LIFE.com about the qualities Eisenstaedt was able to bring out in her that other photographers missed, or simply failed to elicit, Loren considered, then said: “That I was a girl, joyful for her life, because she accepted anything that came with her work. Just being really, completely happy.”
