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.

I’ve been a long time fan of Miss Gardner. One of our cats was named after her… Ava. She was just as spunky too!

Ava and Frank, too
