The man who wouldn’t look at Ava Gardner

Ava mentions in her autobiography the story of this Guard outside Buckingham Palace in London. Ava tried to draw his attention, she circled him, made jokes, danced in front of him, but the guard resisted the urge successfully and never looked at her. Some time later she met his daughter at the airport; she came up to Ava and told her about the day her father met Ava Gardner.

“Hold your horses world. I’ve been hearing all kinds of rumours about someone being cast to play me in a film about Richard and myself. No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself. Not at least until I’m dead, and at the moment I’m having too much fun being alive…and I plan on staying that way. Happiness to all.
I would like to add something to my earlier [statement]. Always keep love and humility in your heart. Never let yourself think beyond your means…mental, emotional or any otherwise. You are who you are. All you can do in this world is help others to be who they are and better themselves and those around them. Give. Remember always to give. That is the thing that will make you grow. That is the thing that will give back to you all the rewards that there are. Don’t do it for yourself, because then it becomes selfish. Because then it becomes about yourself…which is wrong. Giving is to give to God. Helping is to help others.
Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind. I love you.”
