Americana: Mogambo...it's fun to say.

#HL-8 Ava Gardner Hollywood Legends Personally-Worn Dress (142/325)

Today's Americana card doubles as a guessing game with no answer. Which man was Gardner married to or romantically involved with when she owned the dress from which this swatch was taken?
A. Mickey Rooney
B. Artie Shaw
C. Frank Sinatra
D. Howard Hughes
E. Ernest Hemingway

A big part of me wishes that Hemingway once ripped this yellow dress off her in a fit of passion. The light color is befitting on the warm climates of Hemingway's novels. The Sun Also Rises comes to mind.

Tomorrow you'll all be getting Thorzul's Easter Update. It will be a blast.

That would be "C," Frank Sinatra, final answer. (God I love wikipedia!)

Wow, collectors sure have sparked some very bizarre trends from the card companies... Frankly, I think the would have done better to sell the whole dress on eBay and pulled in more moolah than they'll get from selling hobby boxes...
