6 of my favorite Ava Gardner movies...

...were reviewed on my guest post for Sophie at Waitin' On a Sunny Day.

It was quite a challenge for me to pick 6: I already had some favorites, but I just had seen her most known films. So I watched more movies, like The little hut (weird comedy), The bribe with Robert Taylor, East Side, West Side with Barbara Stanwyck and The sun also rises with Ty Power &; Errol Flynn. See which of these titles made it to the final list.

Check it here!



  1. Hey Clara, I just gave you an award. Check out my blog for the details.

  2. i love Ava but out of all the films you listed i have only seen East Side, West Side and One Touch of Venus so far but i do have the others downloaded. now i cannot wait to watch the rest. thank you thank you thank you so much for post the Speak Low song i have been looking for the film version of the song forever to put on my ipod. great post :)

  3. THANKS A MILLION Monty, you're very kind. I'll reply over your blog and pass the award as soon as possible :)

  4. Thank you Alias! It's always nice to read people talking enthusiastically about movies, and even more if it's about something you posted. And yeah, "Speak Low" is a lovely song! Anyway, you should thank Sophie, if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have done the post :)

  5. A mi madre y a mi nos encantaba ver Venus era una mujer, la escena de la estatua cuando cobra vida y el pobre dependiente repetiéndola una y otra vez ante los agentes es unos de los mejores, para mí, momentos de la película.
    Mogambo, me encanta y la Condesa Descalza, además en esta última trabaja con H. Bogart que es un valor añadido.
    Fiesta, no me gustó demasiado y las otras que nombras no las he visto.
    Ava Gardner era una mujer bellísima que vivió muy intensamente.

  7. Hola, Lola! A mí tampoco me gustó "Fiesta", la encontré monótona, por eso no la agregué a la lista final :) Y sí, para guiarme un poco vi un documental sobre la vida de Ava, y como dices, vivió muy intensamente. Gracias por visitarme y compartir tus experiencias con su filmografía :) Saludos!!
