Celebrating Ava Gardner day on Turner Classic Movie’s Summer Under the Stars today!
I admired her spunk. She was indeed a beauty and full of down-to-earth, Southern, brazen spirit. My favorite Ava films are The Sun Also Rises (1957) with Tyrone Power and The Barefoot Contessa (1954) with Humphrey Bogart and Rossano Brazzi.
Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (1952) with James Mason is a quite a dynamic story too.
