About

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.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and feel free to leave your comments!

    • Hello! Thank you for your comment. I will include the link to your website. I don’t have Flame and the Flesh. Keep in touch!

      • By the way, do you collect movie memorabilia with Lana? Would you be interested in trading with me some materials? Clippings, magazines etc.? Let me know. All the best, Monica.

      • Hi Monique,
        I would love to, but at the moment I only have the movies and some newspaper clippings. But those clippings are digital.
        If you need any of them, let me know. Maybe better to email me at: info at lana-turner.com

      • Hi Monique, do you maybe have the magazine Woman’s Home Companion from Dec. 1951? It has a cat on the cover.
        I would love to read the article about Lana Turner in it.
