Ava Gardner & Frank Sinatra (1951 - 1957)

They stayed very, very close. Every time I’d be with her, he would call at least once. And she would go up into her bedroom, close the door, and talk for half an hour. The only time I saw them together, she was staying at his suite at the Waldorf Towers. He was looking up an address in the phone book and he couldn’t read it without his glasses, which he didn’t have. And Ava, who had these funny little Ben Franklin-type half-glasses, said, ‘Here, try mine.’ And he put them on and he said, ‘Hey, they work for me! That’s another reason why you and I should get back together.’ Which I thought was kind of cute. -Stephen Birmingham

We became ­lovers forever, eternally. Big words, I know, but I truly felt that no matter what happened we would always be in love.

Ava Gardner & Frank Sinatra | November 7, 1951 - FOREVER

Our love was deep and true, even though the fact that we couldn’t live with each other any more than we could’t live without each other sometimes made it hard for outsiders to understand. All I know is that if Frank had lost me or I’d lost him during those months, our worlds would have been shattered.

I first saw Frank at a dance in Newport News, Virginia when he was singing with Tommy Dorsey. I had a crush on him, but I didn’t meet him then. He was my dream idol long before we had our first date.

We first met at the opening of Gentleman Prefer Blondes on December 8, 1949, and then we saw each other again soon afterwards at a party in Palm Sprigns. He asked to drive me home from the party.  He told me, under the stars, that his marriage was through. Then he sang to me under a palm tree.
