    Ava Gardner Assorted Photos. This intriguing set of four b&w photos includes a 10" x 6" portrait of the cast and crew of Mogambo, with Gardner, Grace Kelly, Clark Gable, and John Ford located front and center; two 8" x 10" photos of Ava and Frank Sinatra's Palm Springs estate, and an 8" x 10" of a .22 derringer pistol with five bullets stamped with the names of the cast members of Night of the Iguana -- plus Elizabeth Taylor, who was accompanying husband Richard Burton on the set. (Because his actors would be living and working together for an extended period in an isolated location for the film, director John Huston gave each cast member one of these gold-plated pistols and a set of bullets; the gag was that if and when the actors became fed up with one another, they could use the designated bullets. Fortunately, no problems arose between them.) The photos are in Excellent condition.From the Ava Gardner Estate.
