Lana Turner and Oscar® winner* Ray Milland star in this look at the special curse of glamour, directed by George Cukor (The Philadelphia Story) and written by Isobel Lennart (Funny Girl). Turner is Lily James, an ambitious young woman from the Midwest who comes to New York to make it as a model. On her first day in town, she’s befriended by Mary Ashlon (Ann Dvorak), an aging former cover girl whose despair haunts Lily as she struggles to the top. Once she’s made it, Lily believes she’s transcended her friend’s fate – but then she falls hard for a married man and her path begins to look much like Mary’s. A Life of Her Own was Lana Turner’s sole film with George Cukor, the director for whom many great actresses gave their finest performances. Featuring support from Dvorak (1952’s Scarface), Tom Ewell (The Seven Year Itch) and Louis Calhern (1952’s The Prisoner of Zenda), A Life of Her Own is a story that is masterfully told; and timeless. *1945; Best Actor for The Lost Weekend “Oscar” is the registered trademark and service mark of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
