HOLLYWOOD, Cal., April 17 — Friends of Steve Crane and Lana Turner say that it finally was a case of two ambitious people under one roof. Crane came to Hollywood believing he had leading man qualifications and was determined to carve out a career for himself.
On the same day Lana issued her announcement that everything was lovely, the studio (Columbia) where Crane is under contract slipped out the story of their latest break. Crane had already left home to reside with a friend. He couldn’t bear to read his wife’s protestations of bliss, so he broke the story.
“Only one girl in Hollywood history ever approached Lana for doing the unexpected,” said an old timer. ” Her name — Clara Bow.”
