Ava Gardner on Whats My Line Beautiful Ava Gardner makes her first ever television appearance as a mystery challenger on What's My Line on September 13, 1953. (Watch for Arlene Francis' potentially embarassing question about Ava's marriage. Ava was married to Frank Sinatra at the time. Their wedlock was volatile.)

A little Sinatra-Gardner trivia:

- Frank Sinatra bought her a puppy for her birthday during their courtship, a Corgi she named Rags. For the rest of her life she always had a Corgi with her. After Rags died, she had Cara and then Morgan.

- Sinatra was broke by 1951. Ava had to pay his plane ticket, so he could accompany her to Africa, where she shot Mogambo (1953). He nicknamed her Angel.

- During the first two years of her marriage to Sinatra, he was at the lowest point of his career. She often had to lend him money so he could buy presents for his children. This all changed after he won his Best Supporting Acror Oscar for his performance in the 1953 film 'From Here to Eternity'.

- She spent her final years as a recluse in her London apartment. Her only companions were her longtime housekeeper Carmen Vargas and her beloved Welsh Corgi, Morgan. Frank Sinatra paid all her medical expenses after her 1989 stroke, which left her partially paralyzed and bedridden. Vargas took her body home to her native North Carolina for private burial. None of her ex-husbands attended.

- A statue of her from 'The Barefoot Contessa' (1954) was given to Frank Sinatra as a gift. He kept it in his backyard garden well after their divorce. When he married Barbara Marx, she forced him to get rid of it.

- Ava had an abortion with Frank Sinatra's child, because he was still married to his first wife.

she had a real untamed sensuality

Unfortunately, Hollywood preferred/s blondes.

The formula never disappears.
