Before we check out authentic Sweater Girl Lana Turner quotes below, here’s a short information of this Hollywood glamour queen.
Screen goddess Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner, or better known as Lana Turner.
“The Sweater Girl” is better known for her tempestuous personal life, her eight marriages and her highly publicized romances with top Hollywood men, that include Rex Harrison, Clark Gable and allegedly Frank Sinatra.
Her films included “Johnny Eager”, “Peyton Place”, “The Three Musketeers”, “The Merry Widow”, “Ziegfeld Girl”, “Diane”, “Love Finds Andy Hardy”, “Calling Dr. Kildare”, “The Postman Always Rings Twice”, and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
The most sensational and controversial story of her life is the death of her Mafia mobster boyfriend Johnny Stompanato on the night of April 4, 1958.
According to the Los Angeles coroner, Turner’s daughter Cheryl Crane had accidentally stabbed Stompanato to death after hearing him argue with her mother, and grabbed a knife from the kitchen.
As exposed in the book, cinema femme fatale Lana Turner may have murdered her abusive lover and let her then 14 year-old daughter Cheryl take the blame for the fatal stabbing.
According to the Daily Mail, detective Fred Otash admitted rearranging the crime scene with Turner’s attorney Jerry Geisler who the Hollywood star called before the cops.
On June 29, 1995, the controversial Hollywood star Lana Turner died at the age of 75.
Note: The quote, “I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up” is NOT by the late Lana Turner.
Actually this quote is taken from her daughter Cheryl Crane’s book.
The line is: “At the age of thirty-eight, she’d rather lose a good earring than be caught without makeup…”
