Glamorous leading lady Lana Turner had a career that spanned five decades from her discovery at a Hollywood café all the way up to her final television appearances. But the Oscar-nominated actress had a tumultuous personal life – including a murder scandal – that could overshadow her screen work. In her two appearances on Suspense, Turner showed off her versatility in a pair of very different roles. We’ll hear her as a woman terrorized by a painting in “Fear Paints a Picture” (originally aired on CBS on May 3, 1945). Then, she’s a detective investigating her own husband in “The Flame Blue Glove” (originally aired on CBS on December 15, 1949).
