Today is the 27th anniversary of Ava Gardner’s death.


One of the most beautiful women to grace the silver screen, she was a star in noir and historical movies, including the epic 55 Days in Peking, and in one of my guilty pleasures, Mogambo.
She also played Venus, in a perfect casting choice.

So here is a small gallery of pictures of Ava.
