Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 27
A Life of Her Own is a film I have talked about on a few occasions so I won’t go into too much detail (see here, here, and here). It’s directed by George Cukor and stars Lana Turner and Ray Milland, which sounds great, but the film is actually a melodramatic turkey which I was only able to sit though once back in the fall of 1997. However, Ann’s performance as a wash-up model is a tour de force and the most memorable part of A Life of Her Own even though she is only has around 10 minutes of screen time.
Likelihood of an Official DVD Release: This one came out on VHS way back when, and despite being kind of a potboiler, it’s still a George Cukor/Lana Turner/MGM film, so maybe?
