Way back when, some observant sage once prophesied:
"It's Frank Sinatra's world; we only live in it."
-in 1951, Nancy Sinatra certainly thought these words were double-dipped in truth; married since 1939 and saddled with three children, she was served with divorce papers in order that "The Voice" could go keep house with the twice-married starlet Ava Gardner (1922 – 1990). The attached article from MODERN SCREEN MAGAZINE will tell you all about it; it's a juicy one - filled hearsay, innuendo and the knowing words of a Vegas odds maker as to whether the marriage will last:
"Will Frank turn out to be a better husband than Mickey Rooney or Artie Shaw? Will Ava have more luck with him than Nancy had?"
(they divorced six years later)
The same magazine also had an article about the courtship of Ronald Reagan & Nancy Davis...
