What would have thought Lana Turner about this story?
27 February 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I won't repeat again the topic of this tale. But if you are a movie buff and aware of the Hollywood story of the late fifties, you can't forget the Lana Turner vs her late husband the mobster Johnny Stompanato murder case. She stabbed him one night, probably denfending her daughter against him, or let her being accused instead of the teenage child at this time. The Lana Turner's daughter was eventually put on trial but released after self defense was proved. So, when I watch this episode, I can't prevent myself to think about this affair. Of course you haev a couple of different lines here, with the actual affair it is inspired from. But I maintain that there is some links between both.
