Still renowned for her sultry screen performances, down-to- earth personality, and famed lifelong love affair with Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner left an indelible mark on Hollywood history and led a life as adventurous as any film script.
Ava is a tribute to a legendary life. Authors Kendra Bean and Anthony Uzarowski take a closer look at the Academy Award-nominated actress' life and famous screen roles. They also shed new light on the creation and maintenance of her glamorous image, her marriages, and friendships with famous figures such as Ernest Hemingway, John Huston, and Tennessee Williams. From the backwoods of Grabtown, North Carolina to the bullfighting rings of Spain, from the MGM backlot to the Rome of La Dolce Vita, this biography takes listeners on the exciting journey of a life lived to the fullest and through four decades of film history with an iconic star.
