An Original Vintage Theatrical Deluxe 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Ava Gardner was an actress from the 1940s to the 1980s. Surprisingly, Hollywood did not recognize the talents of this beautiful actress for years, because she had a long string of tiny or uncredited roles before she became a star! Some of her movies include: Mogambo (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film), The Killers, On the Beach, The Barefoot Contessa, Bhowani Junction, and many others! She was married three times to famous celebrities: Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw, and Frank Sinatra. She also struck a friendship with Ernest Hemingway, who, after witnessing Gardner swim naked in his pool, told his staff "the water is not to be emptied"! She passed away in 1990 at the age of 67.
Important Added Info: Note that this still (and seven others we are auctioning in separate auctions) has a VERY unusual history! They were consigned to us by the son of a man who worked at Hollywood studios in the early 1950s, and he had a good friend who was a photographer (mostly at MGM), and his friend gave him many sexy publicity photos of top stars (many were considered extremely risque by early 1950s standards!). The father kept the photos for years, but apparently his wife hated him looking at them, and after a heated argument, the wife destroyed the photos! But the man had held out some of his favorites in a separate place, and decades later he gave them to his son, and they are being auctioned now! Also note that this still is printed on a deluxe heavyweight paper stock.

Condition: very good to fine.
