Juanita Moore on Lana Turner
Though critics said Turner and Moore appeared to lack chemistry, they couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only did Turner and Moore develop a rapport on set, they remained close long after the film wrapped. In the TCM interview, Moore said:
Oh, she was so sweet. She was such a nice person. And she gave me every opportunity, which they don’t–stars–don’t do that too often. I’ve worked with several stars but Lana was and is a star. She was just beautiful from the time she walked on the set until the day she left. You wouldn’t want to work with a nicer person than Lana. She was just great. And we maintained our friendship, we really did, until she died.
