Ava Gardner and the Ghosts
After being spotted in a photo in the window of a New York photographer, someone from the MGM studio brought Ava Gardner to Hollywood for a screen test. At the end of the screen test the director excitedly exclaimed that she couldn’t talk and couldn’t act, . . . and she was simply sensational! She worked under contract to MGM for seventeen years and hated most of those years. She was largely confined to movie parts that needed a beautiful face and body, but no real acting parts. In 1950 she was proclaimed ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Animal.’ Ava Gardner is number twenty-five on the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest American female screen legends.
Ava Gardner married Mickey Rooney in 1942, and that union lasted sixteen months. Next she married big bandleader Artie Shaw in 1945, and that one lasted twelve months and one week. Finally, she married Frank Sinatra in 1951, and they were not divorced until 1957. The brown-haired green-eyed beauty later claimed that the only thing she ever got out of all her marriages was the money for two years on an analyst’s couch financed by Artie Shaw.
During their marriage Frank Sinatra called her his Angel, and gave her a Corgi puppy that she named ‘Rags.’ Rags was beside her much longer than Sinatra. When Rags died she got another Corgi, and then a third one that outlived her. Her final Corgi, named Morgan, was taken in by Gregory Peck when she died, and he also hired her longtime housekeeper and companion Carmen Vargas.
In this comedy farce she is the new bride who is about to live in a house that may be next to a haunted mansion. Like most of her MGM parts, she is the beauty to adorn the comedy, without any meaningful script lines. Later in life Ava Gardner is said to have confessed about her movie persona, “Deep down, I’m pretty superficial.” She is indeed pretty . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
