The Captured Lieutenant and the Sexy Baroness
"All any girl needs, at any time in history, is simple velvet and basic diamonds." ~ Eva Gabor.
Jolie Gábor, a jeweler married to a solder in Budapest, Hungary, had three beautiful daughters. Jolie became a restless mother and one day told her husband that she wanted to try to become a stage actress. Her husband laughed and said, “You cannot be an actress now. Now you are too old.” Jolie thought about this for a moment and decided that if she could not become an actress, her daughters would.
At the age of twenty, youngest daughter Eva married a doctor and they emigrated to the U.S. Her husband became the personal physician to many wealthy people in Los Angeles, including movie superstar Greta Garbo. Because of that exposure, Eva began her acting career. Her real fame for acting would not come until she played a New York socialite trying to become a farmer’s wife in the television sit-com Green Acres, from 1965 through 1971.
Many fans confused Eva with her sister Zsa Zsa, and they both hated being confused with each other, except for one time. Eva was swimming nude in her mansion pool, and a telephone lineman was working high on a telephone pole overlooking the pool. When he saw her, he smiled and said, “Good morning Eva.”
Eva looked up at the man, smiled, and coyly replied, “No, Dahling, it’s Zsa Zsa.”
It was during this time of fame that she appeared in this movie made for television. The movie begins in 1944, near the end of fighting in World War Two. Eva Gabor is a German Baroness who discovers a U.S. airman who has accidentally fallen from an airplane. She hides him from the German army, and makes him her boyfriend, telling him that as soon as the war is over, she will let him know so that he can leave his hiding place.
Unfortunately, the war ends much too soon for the Baroness, and not wanting to lose her lover, she convinces him for several years that the war is still raging on. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
