Ava Gardner (24 Dec 1922 – 25 Jan 1990) - Ava Gardner is still considered one of the greatest actresses of American film. She was born the last of seven children to poor North Carolina farmers. Life was a struggle for the young Ava and her family, but her story is one of Hollywood lore. After high school, Ava visited her older sister in New York City. The sister’s husband happened to be a photographer and took Ava’s picture. It was so lovely that he hung it in the front window where her image was discovered by a talent scout. Ava began her career with MGM Studios in the early 1940s before the age of twenty, but it wasn’t until she was featured in a 1946 film noir “The Killers” that she gained national notice. He career was long and illustrious lasting through the 1970s, but she was also famous for her high profile (but brief) marriages to Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw and Frank Sinatra (as well as a long-lasting relationship with the neurotic Howard Hughes). Ava died of emphysema at the early age of 67.
Eve (Biblical) - According to the Bible, Eve has the important distinction of being the first woman who ever existed, thus securing her position as the ultimate matriarch of all Homo sapiens. She was created in the Garden of Eden by God from the rib of Adam (hopefully assisted by an anesthesiologist for Adam’s sake). God presided over the young couple’s union in what we might consider the ultimate “garden” wedding, and He instructs them to go forth and “be fruitful and multiply”. At first, Adam and Eve basked in the glory of their Paradise “naked and unashamed” (Genesis 2:25); although God does instruct Adam not to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. We wonder if Adam shared this bit of advice with Eve? Enter talking serpent, first nemesis to humankind, who approaches Eve with his Jedi mind tricks and convinces her to eat the fruit from the Tree. After all, what’s the harm of a little knowledge? Eve shrugs, grabs an apple, takes a bite and hands it to Adam. Adam, by the way, takes the second bite, so he’s no beacon of obedience himself. Yet poor Eve has always gotten most of the blame for both of their indiscretion. The rest is history. As punishment, God expels them from Eden and makes life more difficult for them. Forevermore, women would be forced to bear labor pains in childbirth and man would have to labor hard for food. Now that Adam and Eve and their offspring are equipped with the knowledge of evil, the world basically goes to hell in a hand basket until God sends the great flood sparing only Noah and his peeps.
