However, Turner was actually spotted at the counter of Currie's Ice Cream Parlor across the street from Hollywood High School. Following the murder of her father in a robbery, her mother brought her to California. After her discovery, the renamed Lana Turner made her screen debut in a bit part for A Star Is Born (1937). That same year she gained her nickname the "Sweater Girl" for the impression she made as the sweater-clad schoolgirl whose murder sets into motion the plot of They Won't Forget. By 1938 she was under contract to MGM and appeared in Dramatic School, Rich Man, Poor Girl, Love Finds Andy Hardy, These Glamour Girls, Dancing Co-Ed and Calling Dr. Kildare, through 1938-39. Turner became a star in a string of major 1941 movies: Ziegfeld Girl, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Honky Tonk (co-starring Clark Gable) and Johnny Eager (co-starring Robert Taylor). Turner came into her own after the war in steamy films such as The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) and Cass Timberlane (1947). Turner's private life, however, was a mess. She was married eight times, twice to Steve Crane. She also married Ronald Dante, Robert Eaton, Fred May, Lex Barker, Henry Topping and bandleader Artie Shaw. She also battled alcoholism. In 1958 her longtime boyfriend, mobster Johnny Stompanato, was stabbed to death by Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane, during one of many violent arguments Turner had with Stompanato. Cheryl was acquitted with the court ruling it was justifiable homicide. Turner got her biggest break in 1957 starring in Peyton Place, receiving an Oscar nomination for her role as a worried mother in the scandalous tale of sex and passion in a New England town. Turner continued to appear in films until 1980 and had a recurring role as Jacqueline Perrault on the TV series "Falcon Crest" (1982-83). She published her autobiography, "Lana: The Lady, The Legend, The Truth" in 1982. Lana Turner died June 25, 1995 in Century City, CA after a long bout with cancer. (bio by: Craig Johnson)." Image.

She outlived three husbands, but Henry was the love of her life. She grieved for him the rest of her life. He died at age 27 from cancer that the VA determined was a result of his exposure to chemical fumes while serving in World War II, leaving behind Savola and their toddler Marion Edward Simpson.
