#149: Ava Gardner Centennial (with Lora Stocker)

It’s our last episode of 2022 and we’re going out with a bang! Lora Stocker, of the Ava Gardner Museum, sits down with Samantha to talk about the woman once described as “the world’s greatest animal.” The pair discuss the rumors associated with her, Gardner’s famous marriage with Frank Sinatra, and which movies show off her acting talents the best.
We’re so happy to have another year in the books! We’ll be back in January with new episodes. Ticklish Biz wishes you all a safe and happy holiday season and a great new year!
Kristen’s written a new book for TCM and Running Press called But Have You Read the Book? all about film adaptations! You can pre-order it now before its March 7th release date.
