My love for the movie is twofold. Fold one: Ava Gardner is Ava Gardner. Can you believe this big-screen goddess came from a small town in North Carolina?
Fold two: the song "Old Man River." My favorite lyrics -- "I get weary and sick of trying/ I'm tired of living and scared of dying." Okay. Little bit of a bummer, yes, but such a great song!
And that voice! What a voice.
