From Wikipedia:
“Cheryl Christina Crane (born July 25, 1943) is the only child of actress Lana Turner, from her marriage to actor-restaurateur Stephen Crane, her second husband.

On April 4, 1958, at age 14,

Cheryl Crane

stabbed her mother’s boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato, to death.The killing was ruled a justifiable homicide: she was deemed to have been protecting her mother.

Stompanato was well-known to have been abusive, extremely jealous of Turner and had previously pointed a gun at actor Sean Connery [James Bond!], her co-star in Another Time, Another Place, only to have Connery “take the gun from him, beat him and force him from the movie set” and “Scotland Yard had him deported”.

Following Stompanato’s death, Crane was made a ward of the State of California and was placed in the El Retiro School for Girls in Sylmar, Los Angeles for “psychiatric therapy” in March 1960.Six weeks later she and two other girls climbed a 10-foot wall and fled. They were eventually returned to the school after she telephoned her father. Five weeks later, she again fled the campus with two other girls. They walked into Sylmar and were driven by a new acquaintance to Beverly Hills, where they were taken into custody a few hours later after being seen near her grandmother’s home. She was released from the school in January 1961 to the custody of her mother and stepfather, Frederick D. May.

In 1969, Crane was detained by the Los Angeles Police Department when three half-grown marijuana plants were discovered in the back seat of her car.

Cheryl further alleged that she was subject to a series of sexual assaults at the hands of her stepfather and her mother’s fourth husband, actor Lex Barker [Tarzan!].

Years later, Crane publicly revealed that she had told her mother she was a lesbian and that she had taken the news well. She said she regarded Crane’s partner, Joyce “Josh” LeRoy, “as a second daughter”.

Crane currently lives in the Palm Springs, California, area, retired from real estate and is married to her long time companion Joyce “Josh” LeRoy. She has written a mystery novel titled The Bad Always Die Twice, published in 2011.”

From:    DETOUR A Hollywood Story” by CHERYL CRANE:

“When she [Lana Turner] made her way to Hollywood in the thirties, that too was part of a wider migration. She had been raised dirt poor, partly in Oklahoma, but she was not one of the “Okies” described in John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath”, the hapless farmers who headed west to flee the Dust Bowl. Instead, her odyssey seems more of a piece with Nathanael West’s “The Day of the Locust”, in which people who simply did not fit in anywhere else came to California in search of magic. West saw them forming a subculture of misfits that swarmed like metaphoric locusts around America’s fantasy capital.”

“I was now about as tall as Mother, yet I still had to wear doll clothes –Mary Janes, little white socks, and horrid pinafores sashed with a bow.”

“Lynne wore saddle shoes; I still wore ankle-strap Mary Janes (but never made of patent leather, of course, since they reflected up a dress).”

“I was still allowed to wear only pastels, flat heels, and no makeup except lipstick.”

Alcatraz & Monica

um hi


Approximately two years ago, I took my new Mazda 6 (paid cash –sniff!) on vacation.
Drove down to Santa Nella California and stopped at the Pea Soup Anderson for a rather expensive breakfast, South on I5, then taking highway 41 (to the James Dean cutoff!) to arrive at Morro Bay. It was rather warm for October. Noticed the giant rock, which back in the 70’s you could climb without breaking the law, checked into the motel and then drove to the waterfront and parked the car.
There was a line of people waiting for food! So I got in line for a whole hour just to order a crab cocktail. Next time I’ll get an alcoholic drink to enjoy while waiting as they prepare my food. Ate back at the motel.
Later after my shower, put on my Rebecca Starr

outfit: school girl flats, lacy bobby socks, pretty panties,short plaid skirt, bra, school girl blouse, ear rings. Inserted anal dildo, and had one of my best orgasims of the year after about an hour making contact with my incubus!
Next morning went back to the waterfront, and found the bakery where Jack Lalanne (exercise guru) used to go, when he was still alive, after exercising all morning to get a bran muffin for breakfast. They even had his seat by the fire place marked.

Drove up to Santa Clara, right in the heart of silicone valley.Traveled on down Stevens Creek Blvd to where it became San Carlos Blvd heading toward San Jose. About a mile past Winchester Blvd exists the great falafel stand! Had a falafel and banana shake. In Santa Clara checked into a cheap
motel costing over 100 bucks per night!
While checking in the clerk said we have free coffee in the morning.
I said “No way I’m going to Stan’s donuts!” (best donuts on the planet)
So, the next morning brought back Stan’s donuts and coffee to the motel.
After which it was now time to drive up to Frisco to catch the boat to Alcatraz Island.
I had been to Frisco many times, but had never been to the Island.
I was going to go to Alcatraz two years previously with my sister, but an enormous Disney cruise ship came in and bigfooted all the tickets. This time I already had my ticket printed out from my printer in black and white.
Got off the freeway too soon because I was worried I would end up on the Bay Bridge! Found a Vallero gas station, pulled in, and locked the Mazda setting the alarm as I had to use the facility. I had to go both #1 and #2 (urinate and defecate for my foreign readers). Looked at my watch noticing that I had one hour to catch my boat. I asked the cute Asian gal working in the gas station how to get to Fisherman’s Warf from there. She said “It’s easy!” then gave me the directions.
Got on the boat and proceeded to Alcatraz Island. Upon arrival they tried to corral the people getting off the boat so someone using a bullhorn could expound on the American Indian take over of the island during the early 1970s. I knew the story and kept walking to not waste time. I went up and up, then it would be easier to go down the rest of the tour. Arrived at the cell block and was given some sort of memory device with headphones. So, I can go on the tour at my own speed. Anyway, it was hot and crowded. So, I started hitting the skip button and going faster.
Interesting criminal legends such as the birdman and Al Capone  inhabited Alcatraz at one time. Would have another celebrity convict except the Whitey Bulger movie was amazingly lousy.
Saw the famous exercise yard with the concrete steps and view of Frisco. Time to leave!
Long line at the boat, and feared that I would have to wait for the next one, but I got on.
Back in the city (Frisco–San Francisco for my foreign readers), I went to a run-down looking but famous restaurant–Sabella Latorre. As I approached a live band was playing “If you’re going to San Francisco be sure to wear a flower in your hair.” They sounded good too.
At the restaurant had clam chowder, crab cocktail, one lobster tail, with Frisco sourdough bread, washed down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Before the big earthquake of 1989, it was easy getting in and out of there. Just jump on the Embarcadero, which was destroyed by the aforementioned quake.
Next day drove to Watsonville to check into the motel, then drove down the pacific coast highway (the PCH for you people in California) to  Monterey and had Cioppino for lunch washed down with Chardonnay. Walked around the pier for awhile.
When I was a kid my father owned some beach front lots north of there, but the state eminent domained him out making it a state park. Would have made him rich if he could have held onto the land.
So, drove back to the motel in Watsonville, where my cousin lived on an apple orchard many years ago before moving north of Monterey by my father’s lots.
Next day had breakfast at Casa de Fruita, which has been a road side attraction longer than I’ve been alive. Drove past the big reservoir, which was rather low back then due to the drought. Approaching I5 as highway 33 goes to Gustine Ca, where the oldest living movie star resides. Baby Peggy

child actress from the 1920s, then home by the afternoon.
