She Was A Prominent Actress For Fifty Years
At MGM, Ava Gardner was almost unintelligible due to her thick southern accent (she was born in South Carolina). They promptly signed her, despite the fact that she was aware of the risk.
As a result of The Killers, she became a household name after five years of hard work. She was a well-known Hollywood actress for more than half a century until her long-term smoking habit finally took its toll on her in the mid-’80s. She had emphysema and was crippled by two strokes in 1986. In 1990, she succumbed to pneumonia.
