They had faces (and figures) then.
I agree with Patti. She'd have to lose thirty pounds if she was going to be a star today. Great photos, David - thanks for posting it again.
Excellent photos. I agree with the other comments. I miss the days when a woman was built like a woman.
It's amazing to think a little over ten years later Twiggy showed up and everything changed.
Her early films in the 1940s are fun to watch, before she became an icon. She does a nice turn as a gun moll in THE KILLERS.
THE KILLERS is #1 on my list. She's my pick for the ultimate femme fatale in that flick.
Thanks for you post. I hope you enjoyed your visit and come back soon. We're always changing exhibits and putting out new stuff!
Now that is the beauty of the internet! I really appreciate you leaving a comment. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and are looking forward to returning.
On the Beach is another film you should check out if you have not seen it.
She was a beauty. Great photos David.
RReynolds, That is one I've missed and has quite a cast besides Ava. I'm sure I will see it at some point.Reb, Thanks.
That is some timeless beauty.
Very nice! That's a great one of you and her! ;)
Chris/Geoff, My sentiments exactly.Alyssa, Yeah, why did I have to ruin that picture?!
Not for me, she wouln't have to lose 30 lbs!
Chudney, Thanks for stopping by.Dave, Agreed, sir.
God, Ava was quite a lady. She's so good in the The Killers it's freakish. The second you see her you just know that poor bastard Lancaster doesn't have a chance.
Jake, That film and her performance is the noir classic I would take to the desert island. Astounding all around.
