A lovely photo of a young and lovely Ava Gardner. She was the first old Hollywood actress I ever saw with a chin dimple and she made me wish I had one. It’s funny the weird things you remember from being little. I first saw and fell in love with Ava as an actress in Show Boat in 1997. She was stunningly beautiful, and wow could she act!!!
She lived a hard life but she was such a strong and amazing person and her story is very inspirational.
She will be a featured topic in my upcoming podcast episode of “Not Just Yesterday: The Roddy McDowall Podcast” in a few days.
Keep your ears peeled to iTunes, and I will let everyone know when the next episode drops!
That look you give when Jolene comes to take your man and there's not a thing you can do about it.
The Killers, the film that launched the careers of Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. The structure of the film is such that they're quite often absent from the screen, or at least it feels that way, the story is so involving and the two actors are so magnetic, particularly Ava Gardner, that you want to see more of them. It's a noir whodunit and although I had already seen it, I couldn't for the life of me remember the plot, which meant that it was like seeing it for the first time. It's first rate stuff and well worth a watch. I'm a satisfied movie buff tonight.

Trump’s slogan betrays him because it belongs to black women. We have been trying to make America great from the jump. So much nonsense could be avoided if this nation listened to us. There is something unique about black women. Like our male counterparts, we built this nation. However, black women also raised it. We nursed and bathed its children—both black and white—fed its workforce and cleaned its households. We know more about black men, white men and white women than they know about themselves. Therefore, we are in a special position to predict the unknown, advise the unknowledgeable and reshape the unseen future. 🌊
It would seem that these traits would make America treasure us, holding us up as a pinnacle of wisdom. Instead, as Malcolm X said:
The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman. 🌹
As black women, policed by Eurocentric beauty standards, we are routinely attacked for our appearances. Michelle Obama, Rep. Maxine Waters and Leslie Jones are just a few examples of black women whom the internet and media have dragged for filth. 🌊
Our spirited personalities are denounced as inappropriately dominant. Our strong leadership is constantly reduced to words like “controlling” and “pushy,” rather than being seen for what it is: dynamic. 🌹
Sojourner Truth, in her “Ain’t I a Woman” speech, conveyed that society claims that women are to be coddled, put on a pedestal and given the best treatment that society has to offer, but no one ever does that for black women. In fact, when it is done for black women, it’s “corny”—what people call Russell Wilson’s excellent treatment of Ciara. Aren’t we women, too? Do we not deserve to be cherished? 🌊 (excerpt from Y’all Don’t Deserve Black Women by Ashley Nkadi. Video: Imitation of Life (1959))
