Evelyn Horton shares the story of Lorraine Turner to the New Pittsburgh Courier; a Virginia native who found herself in Pittsburgh and has enjoyed it ever since.
Turner recently celebrated her 80th birthday with family and friends in Murrysville. Horton tells the Courier that Turner, as a teenager in the Hill District, was the subject of an outstanding photo taken by renowned photographer Teenie Harris. “The girl on roller skates,” which may be part of one of Harris’ exhibits at the Carnegie Museum. Later, Turner became an “extra” in movies, including “Wonder Boys” with Michael Douglas. Turner then became known as “Miss Extra-Ordinary.” Later she was in movies such as “One for the Money,” “We bought a Zoo” and “Don’t Back Down.”
Happy birthday, Lorraine Turner!
