1. Nice selection of her films.
These films will give the viewer a good idea of how alluring Ava Gardner was at every stage of her career. Wonderful in the 1940s, 1950s and the 1960s. In fact I contend that she was sexiest in Night of the Iguana and Seven Days In May, both made in 1964.
Keep it lit.
