9780762433162: LANA: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies

Lana Turner was the ultimate personification of the term “movie star.” The actress and world-class beauty lived the glamorous life to the hilt, and was part of one of the most notorious scandals in Hollywood history. Lana’s daughter, Cheryl Crane, now tells her mother’s story for the first time, featuring hundreds of never-before-seen photos from her private family collection.

Lana: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies will chronicle her life and 50-year career, starting with the Cinderella story of a girl discovered at a soda shop at age fifteen and made a star overnight. From blonde bombshell to box-office queen of the ’40s, Lana led a whirlwind life marked by seven marriages and a murder trial that made her and her daughter infamous.

While Lana’s private adventures inspired the press, her talent and provocative presence shone on the silver screen. Her films The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Bad and the Beautiful, and Imitation of Life are extensively covered as part of a complete filmography. And from chapters on her lovers to her makeup tips, Lana will show the complete spectrum of the woman, at work and at play. The gorgeous photographs throughout showcase not only the stunning glamour of one of Hollywood’s classic celebrities, but also reveal her other facets: as a mother, a wife, an adventurer, and above all, a woman with a zest for life.

About the Author:

Cheryl Crane is the daughter of Lana and restaurateur Stephen Crane. After attending Cornell University, she went to work at her father's world famous Luau Restaurant in Beverly Hills. Since 1979 she has been a successful real estate broker, and in 1988 authored the book Detour: A Hollywood Story, her New York Times bestselling autobiography. She lives in Palm Springs.

Cindy De La Hoz is a film historian and author of the books Lucy at the Movies and Marilyn Monroe: Platinum Fox. She lives in Philadelphia.

From Publishers Weekly:

Crane, only child to legendary movie star Lana Turner, here delivers an illustrated biography of the Hollywood luminary that belongs at the top of fans' holiday wish lists. The book has the charm of a treasured, well-thumbed scrapbook; it begins with the charming story of Turner's "discovery" at 15, sipping a Coke at the Hollywood Schwab's soda fountain. In short order, she had set off the "sweater girl" trend and was dubbed a "sex symbol" at 16. Turner survived a long career on waves of excess and scandal, entertaining countless suitors and seven husbands ("When she fell in love, she married"). The most prominent of those scandals, which would dominate headlines for months and follow mother and daughter throughout their lives, involves Crane herself: in 1958, at the age of 14, Cheryl stabbed and killed her mother's abusive boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato, a story she relates with humility and grace. The book's greatest draw is the photos-publicity stills, candids and behind-the-scenes shots-that adorn nearly every page; a section on "Lanamours" features page after page of boyfriends (Ronald Reagan, Errol Flynn, Howard Hughes, etc.), and the "Friends" section highlights contemporary actresses, each one more beautiful than the last.
