The best bio ever written about Ava is this one...

I prefer the book she wrote herself-"Ava: My Story". You get the facts straight from her.

You obviously don't know much about her and are not going to if that's all you read. She never wanted to write that book and only did so to save her jewelry; it was after her stroke and she had a lot of hospital bills. She destroyed the first version after she got drunk a few times telling her stories, and her second version was based on interview tapes that were so boring they had to hire a ghost writer to add to it with information from people who knew her. When told it would make a fascinating book only if she told the truth, she responded with Hell no, I'll never tell the truth. It's not a good read actually; you're going to learn much more by reading other bios on her, especially Server's.

I think it is the best book about her. I didn't say it was the only book I have read about her. You don't know what I do or do not know about her so please keep your rudeness toward yourself.I have read almost every book about her and I do not appreciate your nastiness or your attitude toward me.

I think she is pretty, but I don't she is on the same beauty level as Hedy Lamarr or Gene Tierney..and she talked alot about her own beauty in her autobio.

To me, she is beyond gorgeous. I think she ranks above Hedy and even Gene and Liz Taylor.
