Movie Info

In this film, Lana Turner plays an ambitious model who seeks her fortune in NYC. She is befriended by over-the-hill cover-girl Ann Dvorak, who commits suicide. Turner promises herself that she won't end up like Dvorak, but she is inexorably drawn into the hectic social whirl that sealed Dvorak's doom.

Critic Reviews for A Life of Her Own

All Critics (2)

Starring Lana Turner and Ray Milland, this melodrama about adultery is a minor film in George Cukor's impressive output.

This artificially dramatic fluff piece seems as if it was ripped out of the pages of a woman's confessional magazine ... .
