Lana Turner- Red?


I thought Lana Turner was a blonde, but her nickname was Red. I know this was a black and white movie, but her hair looked so light to be a red head...

Good question. Sadly, the film was not shot in color so we could be sure, but I always took that to mean her hair was a kind of strawberry blonde-- blonde looking in some lights, reddish in others.

I imagined her hair looked something like this:

Ginger Rogers was also often referred to as a redhead in her films, and I always thought it was a mistake (she looked so blonde !) but yeah, it might be the black and white.
