Ava Gardner


Ava Gardner was born on December 24, 1922 in Grabtown, North Carolina. Gardner was a film legend who was—and still is—considered by many to be the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. In 1941, she signed a contract with MGM Studios, after which she had mostly uncredited roles. Then, in 1946, she landed a starring role in The Killers, thereby becoming a leading actress. She went on to star in many other popular films, including Mogambo, Show Boat, The Barefoot Contessa, On the Beach, The Sun Also Rises, The Night of the Iguana and Earthquake. Her work earned her both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. Gardner was married and divorced three times, and all of her husbands were hugely successful, high-profile men: actor Mickey Rooney, bandleader Artie Shaw and singer/actor Frank Sinatra. Gardner died of bronchial pneumonia on January 25, 1990.
