  1. Ooh, Dawn, thanks so much for sharing about this film. It's one I've never heard of, and as you know, I have recently become a huge Lana Turner fan. I love these kinds of movies. Definitely am going to look for this one.

    Hope you're having a great Friday.

  2. I love Lana Turner and her style.

  3. A million dollars seems a tad much for one character's wardrobe--even if it was Lana Turner!

  4. I wonder if she was able to keep any of her clothes.
