Lana Turner by Cheryl Crane

Book Description

Lana Turner was the ultimate personification of the term "movie star." The actress and world-class beauty lived the glamorous life to the hilt, and was part of one of the most notorious scandals in Hollywood history. Lana's daughter, Cheryl Crane, now tells her mother's story for the first time, featuring hundreds of never-before-seen photos from her private family collection. Lana: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies will chronicle her life and 50-year career, starting with the Cinderella story of a girl discovered at a soda shop at age fifteen and made a star overnight. From blonde bombshell to box-office queen of the '40s, Lana led a whirlwind life marked by seven marriages and a murder trial that made her and her daughter infamous. While Lana's private adventures inspired the press, her talent and provocative presence shone on the silver screen. Her films The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Bad and the Beautiful, and Imitation of Life are extensively covered as part of a complete filmography. And from chapters on her lovers to her makeup tips, Lana will show the complete spectrum of the woman, at work and at play. The gorgeous photographs throughout showcase not only the stunning glamour of one of Hollywood's classic celebrities, but also reveal her other facets: as a mother, a wife, an adventurer, and above all, a woman with a zest for life.

Dead and the Beautiful by Cheryl Crane Dead and the Beautiful, Paperback (August 2014)

Top realtor to the stars, Nikki Harper is often privy to the kind of celebrity secrets the tabloids would kill to hear. Her mother, Victoria Bordeaux, is the star of the TV series Casa Capri, the same one rocked by the murder of Ryan Melton, the arm-candy husband of the show's co-star, Diara Elliott.

Imitation of Death by Cheryl Crane Imitation of Death, Paperback (August 2013)

When the body of a spoiled, violent, party-boy turns up in a dumpster behind her mother's mansion, Nikki feels duty-bound to get involved. Eddie Bernard may have been the son of one of the biggest TV producers of all time, but the list of people glad to see him gone could stretch from one end of Bel Air to the other.
