When I first saw this movie years ago, it was taped off of Turner Classic Movies and the audio and visual was bad. I didn't watch it all the way through and didn't think this was a great movie. However, I recently did buy this movie and boy was I gladly diasppointed with my first judgement. Lana never has looked better. She looks young and has the most perfect figure. Story revolves around adultry. Lana has a romance with pre-Bond Sean Connery in England during World War II. He tells her that he is married with a child. They separate and reconcile just before Connery is killed in a plane crash. Lana has a nervous breakdown and decides to visit Sean Connery's cornish village. In Lana's weak emotional state, she decides to visit Sean Connery's home. Lana befriends his wife, Glynis Johns, who gives an excellent performance as the back at home wife, who always waits for her husband. As you can anticipate and wait, when does Glynis Johns finds out Lana is the woman, who stole her husband. Barry Sullivan, Joan Crawford's husband from "Queen Bee," plays the boss of Lana Turner, who waits patiently for Lana to come back to reality and back to him. Movie is A+ quality.
Trivia: One wonders how Lana acted and looked so good through movie because she was being harassed at the time by gangster boyfriend Johnny Stompanato. According to several Lana Turner biographies, he fought with Sean Connery and lost control over jealousy toward Lana Turner. Johnny Stompanato was exported out of the country because he legally wasn't supposed to be there. Shortly there afterwards, Johnny Stompanato was stabbed to death by Lana Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane, when Cheryl thought Johnny was going to kill her mother. This is one of the most famous Hollywood murder cases of all time. As being a friend and someone who has corresponded with Cheryl, I can tell you that she has a heart of gold. It is a shame that many bad things have been written about her by unsympathic people. I would think any good child would do the same thing to protect their parent, who they thought was in immediate danger. Anyway, go buy this movie and enjoy.
