Lana Turner

Lana Turner is always hardboiled! I wanted to title this one Johnny Stompanato —if you don’t know the story of Turner’s turbid relationship with the LA Underworld you should (James Ellroy writes them both as characters in L.A. Confidential). This one is from The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) and if you know the film, you might also know in this scene she is planning to knock off her husband upstairs. NO MORE IRON!
