Ava Gardner, Bhowani Junction
Ava Gardner was one of the most beautiful stars Hollywood (or anywhere else in the world!) has ever had and the 1956 film Bhowani Junction showcases the fact splendidly.
If you’re an Ava Gardner fan and have never seen this film, I recommend you find it as soon as possible. She’s mesmerizing in the role of Victoria Jones. Ava plays an Anglo-Indian woman who is searching for her true identity during the British withdrawal from India. The film is highly entertaining and Ava Gardner was the perfect (PERFECT) choice for the lead role.
Bhowani Junction (Amazon link) was directed by the wonderful George Cukor (one of my absolute favorite directors) and also stars Stewart Granger.
