    Lana Turner has never been one of my favourites, but she was certainly pretty as a blonde and as a natural brunette.

      Her looks are what propelled her career.

        You don’t say? 😉

        Sorry, that was pretty obvious.
        Are you feeling better yet?
        I have to head over to your blog now and see what you’ve been up to…

        Sorry for my abruptness. I am still sick and grumpy, but marginally on the mend.

        (And it would only be obvious to anyone who has ever seen her movies, which I have! There are countless examples of stunning beauties who could really act, but for my money Lana definitely isn’t one of them.)

        You are not abrupt, you are darling. And, Lana Turner couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag, but apparently beyond her looks she was great in bed, it’s an old story.

        Ha, I was being diplomatic! She also wore clothes very well. That’s all I have left in the niceness department.

    Dearest V
    Lana didn’t act, her hair did the work.
    But what hair, coloured, coiffed and curled it was.
    Yours ever

      Faux platinum blonde and couldn’t act her way out of sack, or did her best acting in…oh, I think I’ve let this cold get to me.
