"Lana - The Memories, the Myths, the Movies" is, without a doubt, really quite an impressively presented biography of Hollywood glamour girl, Lana Turner. It was compiled, partially, by her daughter, Cheryl Crane.

This super-glossy volume, containing hundreds of excellent stills, is filled to overflowing with information about Turner that'll, literally, spin your head.

I certainly wish that more celebrity biographies were presented in this meticulous fashion. To me, it really helps one to fully-appreciate a superstar's active life more completely when photographs frequently accompany the text.

If you are not at all familiar with the highlights of Turner's life you'll probably be surprised to find out that it wasn't all a blissful bed of roses. No, it wasn't..... You can be sure that tragedy struck a few fierce blows to this woman who was married 7 times.... (*Be sure to watch "Lana Turner" video-tribute*)

*Note* - In 1995 - Lana Turner (74 at the time) died of throat cancer.

(P.S. - This is an over-sized book)
