Portrait in Black
Portrait in Black: Universal-International, produced by Ross Hunter, directed by Michael Gordon, 1960, and starring Lana Turner and Anthony Quinn, with Richard Basehart, Sandra Dee, John Saxon, Ray Walston, and Anna May Wong in her final screen role as the Mrs. Danvers-y “Tawny”. And location shooting in San Francisco and great opening title sequence. What else do you need to know?
LANA TURNER ACTING TIP: Lana Turner has an extraordinary way of turning to look at someone or something: her upper torso slowly turns toward whatever has caught her attention slightly before her head turns a little faster in the same direction. It’s hard to describe, but the effect is dazzling.
