How the daughter of a miner Lana Turner became a Hollywood star and the dream of American soldiers

Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner (Lana's real name) was born in a small town in the US state of Idaho in 1921. The father of the future star was a miner, he was engaged in the underground sale of alcohol and was killed. As a child, little Julie (that's what the girl was called) was poor, for some time she lived with her mother's friends, where sometimes she was even beaten. This may have led to the development of a sadomasochistic complex in love and frequent changes of partners; Lana had seven husbands. Then Turner went to an orphanage, as the mother did not particularly care about the fate of her daughter.
