A documentary tracing the 44-year career of one of Hollywood's legends. The daughter of a sharecropper, Ava Gardner had a real-life reputation as a good-time girl and a hard-luck wife. She divorced her first two husbands - film star
Micky Rooney and jazz band leader Artie Shaw - after only a year of marriage. She toyed with eccentric millionaire Howard Hughes and, in the late 1940s, married Frank Sinatra.

By the time she died in London in January 1990, she had made more than 50 films.
