Lana Turner was a silver screen siren during Hollywood's golden age, but she was cast more for her beauty than her acting and never given the opportunity to prove herself in challenging roles. As this video reveals, the real drama in her life lay in her highly publicized affairs with men like Howard Hughes, Tyrone Power and Frank Sinatra, but it was her tryst with mobster Johnny Stompanato that sealed her fate as a tabloid goddess. A rare eyewitness account of his death at the hand of Turner's daughter highlights this fascinating profile of the scandalous star.
