Lana Turner (1921-1995) was one of Hollywood’s top actresses. She excelled in dramatic roles, even if her debut was in musical comedies. She is best known today for her portrayals in The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Bad and the Beautiful, Imitation of Life, Peyton Place (for which she got her only Oscar nomination) and, of course, Madame X, which was her last important motion picture and, I would say, the best of all of her performances.
Her life was filled with 7 unhappy marriages and some infamous love affairs with other people in Hollywood, such as Tyrone Power. She had a daughter, Cheryl Crane, who wrote a monumental book in her mother’s memory. Lana also wrote her own biography, which was judged by certain critics as not being very realistic and truthful to her complicated life.
This website is an honest and warm tribute to a great lady and a legend of Hollywood’s most glorious years. Lana was a very beautiful woman, a real model, and I think she deserves credit for all of her important accomplishments.
On this website you will find many wonderful photos, most of them scans from my own collection. Also book and magazine covers, and all kinds of fan tributes to Lana Turner, whom I consider a true Hollywood legend.
