Lana Turner - An elevator operator who soon finds herself a Ziegfeld Girl. "Ziegfeld Girl," a star studded extravaganza staring Judy Garland, Lana Turner, and Heddy Lamarr as three chorus girls whose lives were changed in dramatically different ways after becoming Ziegfeld Girls. The cast also featured James Stewart—top billed despite not having much to do but moon over Lana Turner.
In her autobiography Turner wrote that she had skipped a typing class at Hollywood High School. She went to the Top Hat Cafe, on Sunset Boulevard, and was sitting at the counter sipping a Coke. According to the Sunset Boulevard website, William Wilkerson, who wrote for the Hollywood Reporter, noticed her and thought she was attractive enough to be in films. With her mother's approval, he introduced Turner to the agent, Zeppo Marx, who was Groucho Marx's brother. Soon she was put under contract to MGM.
