Rendezvous With Romance—Lana Turner and Lex Barker
The whole world loves romancers, the saying goes, and it goes doubly when the romancers are a pair as dazzlingly handsome as Lana Turner and Lex Barker.
A few months ago Lana’s dates with Lex were very hush-hush. Then he began to visit her on the set of “Latin Lovers” and to wait for her outside the M-G-M studios to drive her home each day. Having finished his own “Tarzan and the She Devil” and “Thunder Over the Plains,” Lex arranged his day to suit Lana’s schedule. Soon he was turning up wherever Lana went: first in Hollywood; then in Aspen, Colorado; next in Palm Springs. And finally there he was— surprise—on Lana’s plane as she took off for Paris!
From the look of things, it’s all right with Lana if Lex keeps right on appearing wherever she may be. Certainly these exclusive PHOTOPLAY pictures—taken during their holiday together in Palm Springs—show more clearly than all the talk about town that the feeling between Lana and Lex—however that feeling may be defined—is obviously strictly mutual!
