Original Caption: BEAUTY BLITZ... the enchanting Lana Turner poses for her latest portrait. For six years, Miss Turner has been the girl who inspired the “woo woos” of the crowd. Teamed with Robert Taylor, she was “TNT” on theater marquees. Opposite Clark Gable, their clinches tripled her dialogue. Now, in “Slightly Dangerous” [1943] Lana is a comedienne, and she and her co-star, Robert Young, romp through the farce which climaxes into adventure and romance. Blonde, hazel-eyed, and luscious, Lana Turner is the epitome of glamour to hundreds of thousands of young people throughout the country. Under contract to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer since her early start as an “Andy Hardy” sweetheart, she now tops the ranks of the film colony. ⭐️
