DVDless Dvorak Films, Part 9: A Life of Her Own

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?

    Cukor was def a great director but seeing as how he helmed the worst films of Garbo, Shearer AND K Hepburn he is def far from a sure thing 😉
