Details

This is an original press photo. Why, Lana Turner looking, at last, somewhere near the 48 years to which she admits. Hubby No. 6, Robert Eaton, was in tow at a cocktail party held for celebrities before a charity premier of the movie Mardi Gras de Mexico.

Lana Turner (February 8, 1921 -- June 29, 1995) was an American actress.

Discovered and signed to a film contract by MGM at the age of sixteen, Turner first attracted attention in They Won't Forget (1937). She played featured roles, often as the ingenue, in such films as Love Finds Andy Hardy (1938). During the early 1940s she established herself as a leading actress in such films as Johnny Eager (1941), Ziegfeld Girl (1941) and Somewhere I'll Find You (1942). She is known as one of the first Hollywood scream queens thanks to her role in the 1941 horror film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and her reputation as a glamorous femme fatale was enhanced by her performance in the film noir The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946). Her popularity continued through the 1950s, in such films as The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) and Peyton Place (1957), for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.Photo measures 5 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 8-8-1968.
