2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 10: Lana Turner
Welcome to DAY TEN (What the?! Is it really 1/3 over?) of the 2013 TCM Summer Under the Stars blogathon!
Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight “Sweater Girl” Lana Turner!
First, a little Lana trivia: According to IMDb, Turner turned down the role of Laura Manion in Otto Preminger’s Anatomy of a Murder over a dispute with the director over the wardrobe she would be forced to wear.
SUTS and Oscar: Lana Turner was nominated for one Oscar – Best Actress for her performance in 1957’s Peyton Place. She lost to Joanne Woodward for The Three Faces of Eve.
Now onto the blogging!
Kicking off the day is the the return of Jill from Stix on the Beach with her unique look at that page-Turner Lana.
We have Twitter fave @BobbyRiversTV up next, who offers us his thoughts on the beautiful actress.
