  I was looking for communities interested in Ava Gardner and found this one... but now I see that it looks more or less... dead? Anyway, I'm here...

I didn't know much at all about Ava Gardner before. I just knew that she was one of all  the famous classical actors that I have heard about without knowing much... Then for various reasons, "The Barefoot Contessa" came up in a discussion. I googled Ava Gardner to take a look at her, and then *swoons* I decided to watch that movie..... It was interesting - and I loved her in it - but I did not at all like the end; not very logical at all, but that happens sometimes when the writer doesn't know how to finish a good story... Next, I watched "Mogambo". I think she had good chemistry with Clark Gable there. (And I thought Grace Kelly was very cute, but more like a small forget-me-not next to a peony...) And last night I watched "55 days in Peking". I will try to watch as many of her movies as I possibly can.

I think that Ava Gardner was one of the most beautiful women that ever lived!

Just wanted to let anyone in the UK with Sky/cable (I'm not sure whether any UK peeps read here though), that they have been showing Ava Gardner's biography on the Biography channel and so may show it again in the near future...and also that they are showing Mickey Rooney's on Saturday 23rd of this month.

  Hi Guys

I am new here. I have tons of Ava stuff and some stuff that I just have lying around without a home so I am wondering if anyone wants to buy an Ava bio off me. It's a paperback book of the bio AVA by Roland Flamini. It is PERFECT condition except, it has my name written inside it and the price of the book.

I am selling it for $10.00 ONO.

Interesting Article

  Just came across this:


Written by someone who knew Ava in what looks to be the late 50s/60s while she was in Spain. It's not that cheerful, but it's just one person's opinion of her at that stage of her life (I'm somewhat comforted by the bit in her book where she says if she was to live her life again she wouldn't change anything - I always thought that was a great thing to be able to say).

There are some quite amusing bits in it as well though. :)
Dying for a change (how bad a pun was that?)

I was wondering what people thought of Ava as a blonde?

I remember being quite surprised when I saw pictures like the one below for the first time, as Ava was so known for being dark, and of course it suited her and her personality so well.

So, is there anyone who actually thinks she looks better blonde? I think she looks fine, but it takes something away from her - strange as blonde is considered the colour that makes people more noticeable (holy generalisations Batman). I'm certainly not going to criticise though, being a person who has had more hair colour changes than knickers. That makes me sound like a right dirty-stop-out doesn't it?

Always thought Artie Shaw was quite gorgeous to look at, but sounded like such a bastard. Not my sort of man at all...

  Hello dahlings! Im Kate, and a huge Ava fan. It seems like this community is pretty dead :(...

I was looking through some Ava trivia and realized that 5 actresses have played her.

"Is portrayed in The Aviator (2004) by Kate Beckinsale and by Marcia Gay Harden in Sinatra (1992) (TV).Is portrayed by Deborah Kara Unger in The Rat Pack (1998) (TV), by Christine Andreas in Love and Betrayal: The Mia Farrow Story (1995) (TV) and by Jon Mack in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge (1999) (TV)"

The only one I have seen is The Aviator and I was wondering if any of you had seen the others. Im interested in seeing The Rat Pack & Sinatra

Just thought I'd let you gals know that Lulu Beauty has a lipstick color named after Ava, and it can be bought online here.

It's also worth checking out if you're into pretty much any vintage actress. :]

Well, I'm not sure why I'm bothering to post as I don't think anyone reads this anymore...but...

I've come across two websites which I hadn't seen before:




The latter has some cuttings from old magazines, including one quite long interview with Ava, so is worth a visit for that alone.
