Classic Hollywood: Ava Gardner (Image year unknown)
April 25, 2011 by Dennis Amith
An image I own in my Classic Hollywood photo collection of Ava Gardner (Dec. 24, 1922-January 25, 1990) is the following picture above. I’m not sure what date this image was taken but I would guess that it is anywhere between 1953-1964.
Ava Gardner is listed in AFI’s “Greatest Female Stars” at #25 and she is best known for her Academy Award nominated (Best Actress) performance in the film “Mogambo” (1953). She is known for her work in “The Killers” (1946), Bhowanji Junction (1956), “On the Beach” (1959), “The Night of the Iguana (1964), “Earthquake” (1974) and “The Cassandra Crossing” (1976).
Ava was married to Mickey Rooney (her first), then to Howard Hughes, Artie Shaw, Frank Sinatra and Luis Miguel Dominguin.
Ava who smoked all her life, passed away from pneumonia in 1967.
