Back from Acapulco: Actress Lana Turner and Los Angeles businessman Johnny Stompanato return from a Mexican vacation. ("But there is no romance, Lana says," according to the original caption.) Turner's 14-year-old daughter, Cheryl, right, is on hand to greet them. Stompanato had been linked to mobster Mickey Cohen, but no matter -- Cheryl would stab Stompanato to death in a few weeks, claiming he had been attacking her mother.
