LANA & JOHNNY WERE LOVERS is a 2 act stage play that dramatizes the turbulent relationship between Lana Turner and Johnny Stompanato.

LANA & JOHNNY WERE LOVERS

Yes, she did.  I think Garfield was perfect too.  He's a perfect manly, masculine to her ultra feminine.  A "prettier" male lead may not have worked in the same way.  They both had a very raw quality about them in that film.  They were both so needy on a variety of levels, and it came across beautifully.

I hear from so many places how great Lana was in this film.  I've yet to see it.  I may not wait for it to come on TV, I may just buy it from Amazon, it sounds so good!  I think Lana's awesome in The Postman Always Rings Twice.

I am a fan of Lana. But I am like Patti, I never really cared for her a lot, but have to say, I haven't seen films with her, until I saw Imitation of Life and The Three Musketeers. Especially the first one made me look her up and I tried to get hold on all the books I could. She was, next to Dietrich and Crawford the epitome of the word "star", and one of the most beautiful women who ever graced the screen.

My apologies for being AWOL for so long. Still loving Lana and glad to see some more members here. :)

I love this photo of Lana from Ziegfeld Girl.

I often think Marilyn Monroe was inspired a lot by Lana's acting and look (and Betty Grable's).  What do you think?

Hey Ghosty, nice to join your group.  I think my favourite Lana Turner movie is The Postman Always Rings Twice.  Remember, when Life gives you lemons, make Lemonade! Best wishes!

Welcome all new members. Life is doing a number on me so I haven't been active here at all in some time but (fingers crossed) I may be able to ransack the Warner Archives for "Honky Tonk", "Slightly Dangerous" and "Johnny Eager" around my birthday. While the Archives are great, Lana joins many MANY other stars whose films will probably never get a proper commercial release on DVD/Blu-Ray. :(

Thanks to Mad and Marcia for joining! BTW: During the latest snowstorm here on the East Coast I bundled up and watch "Johnny Eager". The sizzling chemistry between Taylor-Turner could've melted all the snow outside. :)

Jean Harlow, Mary Dees, and SARATOGA

I watched SARATOGA again last night for the first time in years and still found it very depressing. It is so sad to watch Harlow, clearly weak and listless, playing each scene when you know how sick she is. And every time I saw her double Mary Dees’ back turned to the camera, all I […]

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]

How’s It Going, Everybody?

Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
