Ava Gardner Signed The Killers Display

"Maybe because I hate him. I'm poison, Swede, to myself and everybody around me! I'd be afraid to go with anyone I love for the harm I do to them! I don't care harming him!"


This classy matted display piece contains a superb movie poster reproduction from the 1946 film noir The Killers together with a signed cheque from the legendary Ava Gardner. The part of Kitty Collins in this film in many ways marked Ava's breakthrough role. The piece has been professionally matted in acid free materials to make a great display and is ready to be framed.


In the movie a private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames....

One of Hollywood's legendary "love goddesses," this green-eyed brunette beauty combined feline grace with passionate intensity, and while she never claimed to be a great actress, she held her own in a number of memorable films. Gardner was born into a poor family, and had no loftier ambition than to become a secretary in New York until her picture was seen by MGM's East Coast talent executive. A screen test was arranged (deliberately silent, because her Southern accent was so thick) and she was judged to have potential. She flew west to Hollywood and cheerfully signed a term contract with the studio, which promptly enrolled her in acting classes and took hundreds of publicity shots of her before she ever stepped on a movie set.

In later years Gardner lived in London, but spent one season as a cast member of the TV series "Falcon Crest" (1985) and shortly before her death completed an autobiography, "Ava," which was published posthumously in 1990. More than one obituary declared her the most beautiful woman who ever stepped in front of a camera, and she was once in fact "voted" The Most Beautiful Woman in the World.

Star of Show Boat, The Killers and ex-wife of Frank Sinatra
