[Los Angeles, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1944]. Vintage original 7 1/2 by 9″ (18 x 22 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo.

Ava Gardner is shown in her youthful glory in a posed but rather candid beach photo. Likely photographed at the beach in Santa Monica. it is a bit rare to find an image which combines this type of glamour and candidness. Her stunning beauty, which brought her to the attention of MGM executives in 1941, is vividly displayed.
