Linking the idea of sexual empowerment to the filmic and public celebration of hyper-feminine sexuality, the book additionally covers previous feminist discussions of Mae West's performances as "feminist camp" to argue that West sought to both celebrate and embody for women viewers what she viewed as cultural ideals of femininity and women's sexuality.

Inside the master bedroom of a rented home at 730 North Bedford Drive a couple argued violently while a young 14-year-old listened in fear at the door. Fearing for her mother's safety and armed with a knife, as the door opened she rushed in, stabbing her mother's boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato, to death. It was Good Friday. Movie Star & the Mobster goes behind the dark and stormy relationship of movie goddess Lana Turner and Johnny Stompanato, would-be bodyguard and go-to guy for Los Angeles mob king Micky Cohen. Taken from court transcripts, police reports, and autopsy findings, Movie Star and the Mobster at long last pieces together the details behind the volatile romance between Lana and Johnny and the circumstances of that fateful evening. From the night of the killing to the frantic attempts to save Johnny's life, the trip to the police station, the inquest and media circus, the story goes beyond the tragedy to explain how Lana Turner's life and career recovered from the tragedy, but would forever be linked to the scandal. With rare photographs and new details on the chronology of events one of Hollywood's most fascinating and enduring scandals is uncovered.

Download and read online Lana Turner Das erste Glamour Girl in PDF and EPUB Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Kunst - Fotografie und Film, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hollywoods größte Schauspielerin der 1940-er Jahre war Lana Turner (1921–1995), die eigentlich Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner hieß.
