To celebrate Ava Lavinia Gardner's birthday, we start with 4 black/white films: The Killers, The Bribe, The Great Sinner and East Side West Side. Color films include The Little Hut, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, The Barefoot Countessa, Bhowani Junction, Showboat, The Naked Maja, Mogambo, and Knights of the Round Table. My favorites are the first two (Little Hut - very charming and Pandora - interesting mystery) but in any case, Ava's glamor is unmatched and represents the star system in classic Hollywood at its best.
This is dedicated to all the Ava fans out there! Especially Claudia and Dina.
I did an Ava tribute at the start of the year but since then, I got Pandora, The Little Hut, Showboat, The Great Sinner and The Naked Maja which are five of her most glamorous roles, so why not another tribute?
Music is from The Saint by Grame Revell and Nina Simone sings I Put a Spell On You (which Ava did with everyone who met her). I am launching this video a bit earlier since I released one earlier by mistake...so, oh well.
Other stars seen here include: James Mason, Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, David Niven, Stewart Granger, Kathryn Grayson, and Anthony Franciosa.
