Ava Gardner : the secret conversations by Peter Evans( Recording )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ava Gardner was one of Hollywood's great stars during the 1940s and '50s, an Oscar-nominated leading lady who costarred with Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, and Humphrey Bogart, among others. But this riveting account of her storied life and career had to wait for publication until after her death, so concerned was Gardner with its frankness. The legendary actress serves up plenty of gems in these pages, reflecting with delicious humor and cutting wit on a life that took her from an impoverished childhood in North Carolina to the heights of stardom. Tell-all stories abound, especially when Gardner holds forth on her three husbands: Mickey Rooney, bandleader Artie Shaw, and Frank Sinatra. She has just as much to say about lovers, such as Howard Hughes and George C. Scott and would-be lover John Huston--all of whom get Gardner's unflinchingly honest treatment
