Crime is Beauty...

...Especially when it's been retouched.

The work that's been done here on Cheryl Crane (Lana Turner's daughter, of course; seen waiting at the police station after that unfortunate incident with Mr. Stompanato and the steak knife) gives a standard jailhouse photo a kind of still, timeless, accidental beauty.

Crane survived her stormy childhood (which included yet more unpleasantness stemming from Lana's legendarily lousy taste in men) and grew up to become a happy dyke, a successful real-estate agent and author, and good to her - definitely rather trying - mother to boot.
