Nothing twinkles quite as bright as a classic Hollywood star and few were ever bigger in their day than Lana Turner.

Of course, there is Lana Turner the legend… and Lana Turner the wife and mother. In her over-size collection of family photos and personal anecdotes, “Lana: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies,” Turner’s daughter Cheryl Crane pulls back the curtain and offers a fascinating peek at a life well lived.

This is Cheryl’s second turn at telling us about life in the Turner household; in her first book, “Detour: A Hollywood Story,” she wrote about her own life, from the controversial death of Johnny Stompanato to coming out as gay and how it changed her relationship with her mom.
