Kravis Center for the Performing Arts | Official Website

To really sell a torch song, a singer needs a torch. Frank Sinatra, master of the love ballad, found his flame in the sultry charms of Ava Gardner. For three explosive years the crooner and the actress fueled headlines, fascinated a nation and broke up the furniture with their free-for-all affair, punctuated by unbridled passion and equal doses of violence. Forever quarreling over politics, music and, of course, other lovers, they married in 1951; separated in 1953 and divorced in 1957. Join Lee Wolf and Steven Caras as they examine this legendary tsunami of high drama that kept Hollywood gossip columns and fan magazines humming for years. The lecture will be accompanied by a video presentation.
