    Ava Gardner Vintage photos from the '40s. Set of four b&w 8" x 10" photos includes two gorgeous close-ups of Gardner, as well as two photos of her with her friend, actress Frances Neal. (The King Features Syndicate caption taped to the back mentions Gardner's previous marriages to Mickey Rooney and Artie Shaw, and speculates that she "might be getting serious about actor Peter Lawford." Alas for poor Peter, it was actually fellow Rat Packer Frank Sinatra who would win her hand in marriage.) The photos are in Very Fine to Excellent condition, with some light wear and tanning. The seaside photo of Ava and Frances is hand stamped en verso by Clarence Bull. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
